Pardee Center Co-Hosts Webinar on the Future of Sustainable Development

On December 14, the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future and the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) co-hosted a webinar titled “The Future of Sustainable Development in The World After Coronavirus.” The webinar, which served as the Plenary Dialogue of SDPI’s 23rd Sustainable Development Conference, built on one of the major themes from the Pardee Center’s The World After Coronavirus (#WorldAfterCorona) video series. Bringing together four of Pardee School Dean Adil Najam‘s guests from the series, the conversation explored the future of sustainable development in a COVID-19 world.

Dean Najam was joined by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr (Professor of International Affairs at The New School; Former Director, UNDP Human Development Report Office); Yolanda Kakabadse (Former President, WWF International & International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN); Former Minister of Environment for Ecuador); Sunita Narain (Director General, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), India; Editor, Down to Earth magazine); and Alice Ruhweza (Regional Director for Africa, WWF International).

The Pardee Center’s “The World After Coronavirus” video series featured more than 100 interviews with leading experts and practitioners from BU and across the world, exploring the myriad challenges and opportunities we will face in our post-coronavirus future. View the full series here.
