Covid 19, Sustainability, Sustainable Development

Sustainability During and After Covid-19

So many things have happened since my last blog post. It seems like years ago. Each day I try to put current events into perspective by thinking about how a focus on sustainability can help.

On a personal level, I talk to friends, family and colleagues to learn how everyone is coping with their new economic, environmental and social situations. I do what I can from a distance by listening and encouraging.

On a professional level, I listen to experts in sustainability and think about the future. In a recent webinar, Sustainability After Covid 19: Voices from GGGI, OECD, UNEP and World Bank hosted by Green Growth Knowledge Partnership, leaders in sustainability expressed the importance of sustainable development as we go forward. One of the speakers summarized it well! He said that sustainable development is more important than ever for the world to recover. We should not squander this opportunity to get it right with regard to rebuilding the economy, environment and society.

 

We need to address the problems and devastation caused by Covid-19. This includes the environmental and social conditions leading to its spread. In addition, we need to work together using our knowledge of sustainable practices to plan for the future.

I urge you to watch the recorded version of this webinar to help inspire you to contribute to a sustainable approach going forward.

Be healthy and safe! Happy Earth Day!
