Sustainability For Ukraine, Tuesday, June 21

Please join us for a global 24-hour web-a-thon on the future of sustainability, as well as a fundraiser for civil society in Ukraine on Tuesday, June 21, starting at 8:00 am EST.

The war in Ukraine is more than a deluge of unprecedented global events that threaten to return progress to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and ruin the welfare of people and the environment around the world.

Starting with Tuesday, June 21, at 8.00am EST / 1:00 pm BST, the global sustainability community will come together within 24 hours and explore the implications of recent events and global trends for the future of sustainability and the need for more collaborative, inclusive efforts to advance sustainable development. This event will also raise important financial support for local NGOs in Ukraine devastated by the Russian aggression.
