World Economic Forum: Sustainable development impact meetings on 18-22 September

The World Economic Forum will host the Sustainable Development Impact Meetings on 18-22 September, in a bid to revive momentum on the sustainable development goals (SDGs) as 2023 marks the halfway point of the 2030 Agenda.

“As the world struggles to rebuild in the aftermath of the global pandemic and in the face of a challenging economy, geopolitical fault-lines and the deepening impact of climate change, progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has been slower than required to achieve the timeline laid out in 2015,” the WEF said. “To respond to these challenges and to revive momentum on the SDGs, during the week of 18-22 September 2023, on the occasion of the United Nations General Assembly, the World Economic Forum will host the Sustainable Development Impact Meetings.”

It added, “Drawing on the Forum’s dedicated communities of purpose, business leaders, policy-makers, international and civil society organisations, innovators and social entrepreneurs will convene in person for a series of carefully curated impact-driven leaders’ dialogues”.
