Together, Building Sustainable Communities
In an era of climate change, consumer addiction and natural disasters, how do we come together to build a culture of sustainability in our communities? In this provocative talk, world-renowned scientist and professor Jacqueline McGlade will explore how we can create ‘collaborative ecosystems’ to help people and their environments flourish. Pushing UN Sustainable Goal 17 to the forefront, Dr. McGlade explores how we can revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
