The European SDG Summit 2020

<p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>As we continue to battle the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we do not return to ‘business as usual'. </strong>The crisis is turning into a global stress test that could create a world that will be less sustainable by design. But it does not have to be like that. We have to turn the post-pandemic recovery into an economic reset and make it the blueprint for a sustainable future.</p><p>For this reason, the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://www.csreurope.org/european-sdg-summit-2020"><strong>European SDG Summit 2020</strong></a> will focus on<strong> “Impactful Partnerships to Build Back Better”.</strong>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>From 26 to 30 October</strong>, you will meet <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://www.csreurope.org/"><strong>CSR Europe</strong></a>'s worldwide community of sustainability leaders<strong> </strong>to <strong>incubate action-oriented collaborations </strong>aimed at:</p><ul><li>Increasing the resilience of enterprises;</li><li>Rebuilding our societies and economies;</li><li>Accelerating the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.</li></ul><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Are you ready to get inspired?</strong> Let's take sustainability from strategy to action, together!
