UN Secretary-General António Guterres will be present at the G-STIC conference, which is taking place as a hybrid event: live in Brussels for a limited number of participants, and online for everyone. He will share his vision of what is needed to accelerate sustainable solutions to the world’s biggest challenges and introduce the High-Level Dialogue on Sustainable Development closing session on 28 October, during which Gro Harlem Brundtland (former prime minister of Norway and former Director-General of the WHO), Alexander De Croo (Belgian vice prime minister) and Jeffrey Sachs (Earth Institute) will debate on how to accelerate the transition to reach the SDGs.
During a roundtable on 27 October, the UN Technology Facilitation Mechanism’s 10-Member Group will take stock of how far we have come in the process. They will discuss how we can strengthen international cooperation on science and on science-policy advice to save lives, – not only in the current pandemic, but well beyond it.
