Rebuild Better: Building an Equitable and Resilient Future
COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, devastating impacts on the lives, livelihoods and learning of millions of people, particularly the most vulnerable. While efforts have rightly focused on mitigating the immediate impacts, we need to start thinking about efforts to recover and rebuild, because action taken now will have long-lasting effects on people’s well-being and resilience.
The pandemic has exacerbated deep inequalities and fragilities in the current system that have always been there. We as a community have the opportunity and the responsibility to act now to build a better future.
Join us for a week of inspiring and engaging content, live events, peer networking and structured learning to explore how we can rebuild better together.
Business Fights Poverty Online 2020 is timed to coincide with the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, the UN central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will come away with fresh insights and new peer relationships to tackle the most pressing challenges facing business, people and planet.
Dates: July 13, 2020 - June 17, 2020
