THE MANIFESTO PROJECT / Elements of the New Manifesto

The New Manifesto will integrate lessons learned since the original with emerging perspectives to investigate current debates in science and technology for development.

Through a series of background papers, various topics will be reviewed with a forward-looking slant, attaching recommendations for action. These will include: the global redistribution of innovative activity, growth, industrialisation and equality, as well as hi-tech grand challenges and the new philanthropy. Subsequent papers covering agriculture, health, water, environment and energy will translate these recommendations to sector-specific issues. These insights will be incorporated into the Manifesto.

New Manifesto events around the world
A series of events running from 2008 will help shape the New Manifesto to be published in 2010, 40 years after the original report. A series of seminars will help inform our research and roundtable events with partners across the globe will help shape the Manifesto’s agenda, while a high-level conference will mark the Manifesto’s launch in 2010.

If you would like to get involved with roundtable events, or host one at your institution, please get in touch.

A multimedia Manifesto
To help bring the issues and debates around the New Manifesto to life, we will use video, audio, wikis and blogs to help create a vibrant, interactive Manifesto that encourages participation and reflects how far science and technology for development research has come in the past 40 years.
