SDG Conference Bergen 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 Søreide Eriksen will be opening the conference.
There are three keynotes:
- Professor Kate Raworth, the author of the groundbreaking Doughnut Economics book, 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.
