As a result of the global coronavirus pandemic, for the first time since its inception the Annual Conference of the World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD) will be organised remotely via video conference technologies. In doing so, WASD will use the latest technology in video conferencing from London with participants from all over the world connecting from homes.
The conference objective is to explore the impact of coronavirus pandemic on the global efforts to achieve the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SD). More specifically, the conference aims to discuss and explore various approaches and different ways planned by governments which can contribute to enhance and support the implementation of Agenda 2030 after the coronavirus pandemic across the world.
Despite the devastating impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the entire world, today more than ever before in human history, there is an urgent need for wake-up call for all countries across the world to find a path to SD. The coronavirus pandemic has turned the entire world into ghost new world disrupting everything in our daily life and shutting the entire countries and cities across the globe.
