2021 SDG Conference Bergen: The SDGs after the crisis

Dear colleagues,

You are hereby invited to sign up #SDGbergen21

10–12 February 2021

While the world has united behind the 2030 Agenda, rising global inequalities have long threatened to derail the progress made so far. Adding to this, the outbreak of COVID-19 has had devastating impacts across the world. Recognizing this global fundamental challenge, the 2021 SDG Conference Bergen focuses on tackling global inequalities, relevant for all of the goals, to achieve a new path for sustainable development, after the crisis.

  • Norway’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Søreide will be opening the conference.

In addition to debates and parallel sessions, keynote lectures will include:

  • Professor Kate Raworth, the author of the groundbreaking Doughnut Economicsbook, providing a visual framework for sustainable development
  • President Daya Reddy of the International Science Council
  • Director of the African Centre for Cities, Dr. Edgar Pieterse

The conference is FREE of charge and open to ALL who register!
