Join us for another episode of the Extraordinary Leaders series on Thursday, May 20th, 2pm BST!
The COVID-19 pandemic is a significant setback for all the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) created by the United Nations to "achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030."
How can we use this make-or-break moment to revitalise the 2030 Agenda and emerge from the crisis stronger and more resilient?
Join Kirsten Brosbøl, Founder & CEO of 2030beyond and former Member of Parliament and Minister of Environment of Denmark, in conversation with Christian Vanizette, Co-Founder of makesense.org, in this interactive session to discover:
- How far have we come since the creation of the SDGs in 2015?
- How has the COVID-19 crisis affected the 2030 Agenda, and what can we learn from it?
- Why don’t 50% of people trust their governments, and how can political leaders do better?
- What is the role of civic engagement in SDG implementation?
Register soon because space is limited.
Date: Thursday, May 20th, 2pm BST | 3pm CEST | 9am EDT
