What's Next for Sustainable Development? Strengthening long-term thinking at the HLPF and beyond
Ahead of the upcoming HLPF and SDG Summit, this SDG Community Coffee will discuss how we can work collectively to strengthen long-term thinking for sustainable development by embracing emerging trends to rethink sustainability, and also highlight key reports and webinars.
The UN Secretary-General’s Our Common Agenda focuses on enhancing future thinking and strategic foresight to accelerate the SDGs. In line with this focus, at this SDG Community Coffee, we will discuss how we can work collectively to strengthen long-term thinking for sustainable development. We will explore how to embrace emerging trends to rethink sustainability, such as through “next sustainability” paradigms like regenerative development.
We will also look ahead to the upcoming High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) by giving a brief overview of the topics connected to long-term sustainability; highlighting key reports and webinars leading up to the forum; discussing the links to the SDG Summit in September; and finally, exchanging on ideas and plans for side events by organizations in the Geneva ecosystem.
