In an age of unprecedented concern for the state of our planet and humanity, what impact can a virus have on global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice?

In this webinar facilitated by Prof Mark Moran, a group of international panellists Florencia Librizzi (UN SDG Academy, New York), Martyn Namorong (Office of the Minister for Treasury, Port Moresby), Jon Samuel (Anglo American, London) will join UQ experts Professor Ove Hoegh-Gulbery, Dr Claire Brolan, and student Sarah Gilmour as we explore challenges to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This is an opening event for a series of online co-creation workshops we are hosting through July to develop ideas and outline a course focused on the SDGs. Workshop participants will be part of a multidisciplinary team consisting of students, academics and industry partners working through a series of collaborative and practical exercises. 

Part of a larger UQ student-focused initiative involving the creation of a suite of new courses aimed at enhancing graduate employability, our aim is to ensure these courses meet the needs of our students and the world of work they will be entering into.

Please register before Friday 10 July to attend the webinar.
