Partnership with the 8th World Sustainability Forum (WSF2020), 15 – 17 September in Geneva

NRP 74 is a cooperation partner of the WSF2020. WSF2020 contributes to building a worldwide platform and network for a sustainability agenda.

Sustainability has gained considerable momentum worldwide:

All UN Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere.

Many countries have included sustainability and thus the Sustainable Development Goals in their national agendas. Many businesses have also recognized the long-term potential in sustainable development and research agendas aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, also for SDG 3: Good health and well-being.

It is time for research, politics and economy to enter into dialogue and take on greater global responsibility. It is a matter of finding ways to ensure long-term sustainable development for the health of us humans, our planet as well as societal and corporate benefits.

The WSF2020 will be coordinated by MDPI*, the MDPI Sustainability Foundation, the UN Global Compact, the Global Footprint Network, and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
