Can we truly leave no-one behind and achieve sustainable development?

The inequalities and injustices in our world today have only been exaggerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created for some a renewed call for action to work towards a more sustainable future for all. This session will explore how already marginalised groups, with a particular focus on girls and women, are disproportionately impacted by issues surrounding sustainable development and how they are often the people leading the way in advocating for change.

We will be led by our own discussions, prompted by examples and case studies along the way, to go deeper on the inequalities that exist in our society today. As well as examining how we can utilise intersectionality in our efforts to achieve sustainable development.

The main takeaway from the session will be our reflections and sharing of experiences, though we will also end by considering how we can turn these discussions into actions both in our home organisations and on our own, as active citizens of the world.

At the end of the session, participants will;

  • reflect upon how already marginalised groups, particularly girls and women, are disproportionately impacted by issues surrounding sustainability
  • explore who exactly is at the forefront of advocating for sustainable development, and how they are treated/recognised by society
  • consolidate discussions by determining a clear call to action of how we can turn our learning into doing both in our home organisations but also as active citizens of the world
