Sustainable Development after Corona

Stronger Commitment and Responsible Dynamics Are Needed! Approaches in Science, Technology and Education.

18-20 October 2021


The Corona crisis demonstrates that we humans only perceive crises when they threaten us personally (sometimes existentially). For years, crises of various provenance have been threatening humans all over the world. Their threats are reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the international community formulated as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. It is obvious they are neither perceived nor addressed with the necessary conscientiousness or responsibility. According to a recent study, only just under 10% of Germans are familiar with the corresponding Agenda 2030 with its 17 SDGs.

The implementation process of the Agenda 2030 is too slow. We will not achieve some of the SDGs. This is already foreseeable today: there is a lack of dynamism–our focus for the summer conference.
