2020 has been a year of dramatic change. Our lives are in flux, systemic inequality is in the spotlight, and our response to the looming economic and climate crises hangs in the balance.
With so much uncertainty, you might be asking yourself where do we go from here?
How do we move forward with purpose?
If uncertainty opens up possibilities, how do we create a “new normal”, built on equality, diversity, sustainability and human rights for all?
One thing certain about 2020 is that it has shown that when we work together, support each other, and make something a collective priority we are capable of change on a massive scale, opening up new possibilities for how we can move forward.
Key note address will be with Mr. Philip Alston, former United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights (2014-2020) to discuss his final report in that role: 'The parlous state of poverty eradication' (July 2020)
Join us from 6-9 October for the first IDEA Virtual Conference ‘Rising to the Challenge – Global Citizenship in 2020’ to unpack 2020 and to explore how we can work together to rise to the challenge!
