2) The SDG Hybrid Webinar: Innovations for Sustainability

Warm greetings. Kindly find the invitation to attend the SDG hybrid webinar: Innovations for Sustainability on 5th August 2022.The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in collaboration with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), is organizing the SDG hybrid webinar,

Innovations for Sustainability: Part 1 Sustainable Infrastructure for Circular Cities and Part 2 Innovations and Startups in the Water Sector on 5 August 2022, 13:30-17:00 ICT (Thailand time) at the AIT Entrepreneurship Center and online.As the world is starting to recover post-pandemic, we have to look at the two important topics that we need to address to build back better: cities and water.

Sustainable Infrastructure for Circular Cities focuses on building capacity to create an enabling environment (policies, financing, technologies, business models, and stakeholder engagement) to replicate and scale up good practices that support SDG #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities.Innovations and Startups in the Water Sector provides a dialogue among various stakeholders to understand the drivers and challenges for the innovations and startups to support SDG #6 Clean Water and Sanitation.One lesson that the COVID-19 pandemic taught us is that we can change. We have seen many cities and organizations adapt their practices and strategies to cope with the challenges brought by the pandemic. As we move forward together, let’s look at our cities and see what we can contribute to making our community better, greener, and more sustainable.
