The year 2020 was nicknamed a “super year” for activism to accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But COVID-19 has brought with it a new set of challenges. This webinar from the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) looks at how the pandemic will affect the Goals.
One of several resources and webinars put together by IAVE, this hour-long webinar entitled ‘Coronavirus and its Impact on the SDGs’ intends to help volunteer organisations with the challenges presented by COVID-19.
Here, IAVE welcomes Lynn Wagner and Faye Leone from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) to discuss the potential effects of COVID-19 and how volunteer associations can best respond to the crisis.
While the pandemic presents several new challenges, IAVE also considers this “an opportunity to come together in solidarity and turn the crisis into a catalyst to solve the UN’s SDGs”. Watch the webinar to find out more.
