SDSN Switzerland & NRP 73 Online Series

16. June – 7. July 2020 | online via ZOOM

Transitioning towards a sustainable economy

Transformational change is required to achieve the 2030 Agenda and reach the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In a series of online workshops, organized by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Switzerland and the National Research Programme “Sustainable Economy: resource-friendly, future-oriented, innovative” (NRP 73), participants will debate the preliminary research findings of NRP 73. The goal of the workshop series is to elaborate calls to action for policy makers, public authorities, as well as business and civil society representatives, in order to facilitate the transition towards a sustainable and fair economy in Switzerland and contribute to achieving the SDGs.
