„If we look at the numbers, investing in a green recovery is the only thing that makes economic sense.” There is less than a decade left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and the Covid-19 pandemic has only made that path even more challenging. On top of the already urgent threat of climate change, how can the world come together to overcome these crises and build a better future? Join #KAPTalks lecturer Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program, to discuss cross-cutting solutions for the decade of action. Her lecture will be the keynote speech at the International Conference for Sustainable Development. See the full agenda here:
