Compassion and the Sustainable Development Goals: A New Tomorrow
August 29, 2020 3:00pm Online
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have set out a blueprint for a new world and new science. Knowledge translation and innovation have set out what is needed to deliver to the blueprint. What has been missing from the SDG agenda is the urgency to deliver on this and the “why” of delivery. However, the pandemic of COVID-19 and our understanding of compassion now positions us differently.
If, as Greta Thunberg says, climate change has put our house on fire, then COVID-19 pandemic has poured petrol on the flames and burnt systems that were seen as indispensable and impenetrable. We are now in a very different place with lots of plans emerging. What does a phoenix of compassion rising from these ashes look like and how can compassion shape this new world.
