Resetting the SDGs in a post-COVID-19 world

24 June 2020

In an age of unprecedented concern for the state of our planet and humanity, what impact can a virus have on global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice?

In this upcoming webinar facilitated by ISSR's Professor Mark Moran, Resetting the SDGs in a post-COVID-19 world, international panellists Florencia Librizzi (UN SDG Academy, New York), Martyn Namorong (Office of the Minister for Treasury, Port Moresby) and Jon Samuel (Anglo American, London) will join UQ experts Professor Ove Hoegh-GuldbergDr Claire Brolan, and student Sarah Gilmour to explore challenges to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This is the opening event for a series of online co-creation workshops we are hosting through July to develop ideas and outline a course focused on the SDGs. Workshop participants will be part of a multidisciplinary team consisting of students, academics and industry partners working through a series of collaborative and practical exercises. 

Part of a larger UQ student-focused initiative involving the creation of a suite of new courses aimed at enhancing graduate employability, our aim is to ensure these courses meet the needs of our students and the world of work they will be entering into.
