2ND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS AND PAPERS

The 1st International Multidisciplinary Research Conference in Business, Education, Science and Technology

Lukenya University jointly with the South Eastern Bloc Universities (UMMA, SEKU, Garissa and Machakos University) welcomes you to the conference. The University embraces a Green Philosophy where green innovative technologies are used in improving everyday life. This is in line with Vision 2030 that aims at transforming Kenya into an industrializing, middle income country through three pillars: Economic, Social and Political. The Big Four Agenda: Food, Affordable Housing, Manufacturing and Affordable Healthcare for all, are service areas of the three pillars of Vision 2030 in which innovation is essential for provision of “green services”.

The main focus is innovations for efficiency and effectiveness while providing quality services and/or products to improve the wellbeing of consumers. For instance, to what extent has innovation been embraced in Africa and globally in investing and producing green services and/or products? Environmental friendliness can be viewed in terms of the way the service or product is, in the way it is prepared or distribution methods and the general impacts that go along with it. Additionally, innovations geared towards improving the quality of life; such as inventive practices in healthcare delivery and education, care about climate change and nature, biodiversity, waste disposal, reduced resource consumption and energy efficient systems among others are the key focus. There are challenges in achieving these targets. However, robust solutions are attainable.
