Re-imagining The Future We Need: Community voices for a healthy, green and just recovery

6 July 2021 @ 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM EDT


NGO Major Group Side Event

This side event at the UN’s High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) 2021 will hear directly from community voices from different parts of the world on action steps needed for a sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. A priority of this session is to ensure the lived experiences of those who are most severely affected by the pandemic are directly included in national assessments of the inter-connected challenges faced by us all; and in setting priorities for a fairer and more sustainable future.
