Could this be the last decade to improve global collaboration for a sustainable future?
2020 was set to be an important year for the advancement of sustainable development internationally, with just ten years left to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). Many major global events, meetings and decisions were planned to help safeguard the world’s biological diversity and climate, build more sustainable cities, and improve educational systems. But sadly, these had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Young people, and the future generations they represent, have the most to lose by not reasserting such ‘partner power’. The online 2020 Summit offers an exciting range of discussions & workshops, designed to help inform and empower students, teachers and schools on a shared journey to create a more sustainable world. This year’s emphasis is on building meaningful partnerships for the next ten years, linked to wider international decision-making processes and initiatives. During this turbulent time, where voices are being silenced by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Partner Power Summit offers an opportunity to reconnect the leaders of today and tomorrow.
