Can the SDGs frame a green recovery:

This is a special online event for London Climate Action Week focusing on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals in an international context, drawing lessons for London leaders.

The SDGs provide “a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030”. As countries seek to reboot their COVID-19 stricken societies & economies, can the SDGs provide a framework for a Green, Fair & Resilient Recovery and a pathway to achieve Agenda 2030 in the decisive decade ahead?

Jointly organised by GLOBE International and the London Sustainable Development Commission, the event brings together politicians with city leaders, legal scholars and campaigners, to explore the SDGs as a blueprint out of the COVID crisis.
