Fairtrade ANZ, the Global Compact Network Australia and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network invite you to ‘Globalisation and the COVID-19 Economic Recovery’. This online event will address challenges and opportunities in the post COVID-19 world and the role of global cooperation in building back better.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Advocate and President of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Jeffrey Sachs is a leading expert on economic development. Jeffrey Sachs has twice been named among Times magazine’s 100 most influential world leaders and ranked by The Economist among the top three most influential living economists.

This invite only event will include a presentation from Jeffrey Sachs on the challenges and opportunities emerging post-COVID. What is the changing role of business leadership and global cooperation in the hopeful future of humankind? What do we need to leave behind to build back better? The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
