Plenary Session: The Big Picture – SDG Action Zone
HOST: UN SECRETARY-GENERAL’S YOUTH ADVISORY GROUP ON CLIMATE CHANGE
When COVID-19 brought the world to a halt, it gave the planet an unprecedented ability to breathe. It also raised a critical question: if leaders across the world could take bold action against this global threat, why have we not seen this on the environmental front? It’s clear that we need to harness this level of urgency and decisive action if we want to save the planet.
Through an intergenerational perspective, this plenary session will highlight the climate emergency and the pushing back on planetary boundaries. It will spotlight accelerator actions such as decarbonizing the economy, building climate resilient infrastructure, developing clean energy, and rejuvenating the loss we’ve seen on biodiversity.
