Webinar: Future of Sustainability 2020 - US | July 30, 2020 at 1:30 PM EDT | Virtual

Looking into the future: How can we harness the radical disruption presented by today’s crisis to drive a truly sustainable, just and resilient future?

The United States is caught at the nexus of several global challenges: income inequality, institutional racism, climate change, food insecurity, and political polarization are some of the long-standing issues facing Americans today. These challenges are exacerbated by the COVID-19 healthcare crisis as several fault lines within society are laid bare and amplified by both the disease and the societal response.

At Forum for the Future, we believe it would be tragic to go back to yesterday’s “business-as-usual”; moments of radical disruption like this provide unprecedented opportunities to reinvent the future. We are therefore calling for business, governments, civil society and communities to seize this moment in helping to deliver a more just, sustainable and resilient world.

Drawing on research and insights we gather annually to understand what is next for the fields of sustainability, impact investing and philanthropy, we will share a suite of futures trajectories we have been developing which help us understand possible ways forward as change-makers. We believe only one of these trajectories, which we are calling Transform, has the potential to create the just, resilient and sustainable systems we need. It is based on a mindset that recognizes the interdependent nature of the challenges we face today. You can read more about the trajectories here.

The sessions will include reflections from inspiring change-makers who are pivoting their work in order to help enable this Transform trajectory – aiming to shift our political, economic and social systems so that they work together in service of human and planetary health, justice and economic resilience.

If there is ever a time to drive this disruptive change, it is now. We hope you can join us.
