Sustainable Development

How optimistic can we be about achieving the Sustainable Development Goals? What positive or negative trends are we seeing that serve as deciders in achieving the SDGs? What are some of the new fourth industrial revolution technologies that might give us an extra boost in achieving the SDGs?

In this week’s episode of “A Glimpse into the Future”, we talk to Charlotte Petri Gornitzka, Chair of the Development Assistance Committee at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Charlotte is also the Chair of the World Economic Forum Council on the Future of International Governance, Public-Private Cooperation and Sustainable Development.
