Lecture and discussion session of the SDSN Germany and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation with Jeffrey Sachs and Gesine Schwan

Numerous people in Europe and North America doubt the development of their countries. Many turn to populists, but others actively stand up for democracy and worldliness. What is wrong with the previous models of globalization and development? Why do so many people feel left behind and not heard even in richer countries? How can broad-based growth in all countries be combined with valuing the natural limits of our planet? The Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development adopted by the world’s leaders at the United Nations in September 2015 is a future-oriented response to the crisis of globalization. The Group of the 20 most important industrialized and emerging economies (G20) has also committed itself to implementing Agenda 2030 at home and abroad. We still do not know what the results of the G20 summit in Hamburg will be in this area. But it is clear that a change of course in Europe and America is necessary. Jeffrey Sachs has set out concrete paths for this in his latest book “Building the New American Economy”. Gesine Schwan sees the EU in a solidarity crisis and promotes a European new start. SDSN Germany and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation cordially invite you to participate in the discussion.

Jeffrey Sachs is the Director of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).Gesine Schwan is co-chairman of SDSN Germany.
