The critical importance of sustainability has been further reinforced during the pandemic. While this year has taught us how truly fragile our world can be, it has also demonstrated the power we possess, when working together, to overcome global challenges.

The virtual ADSW Summit will bring together leaders from policy, business and technology to define new pathways for delivering a green recovery in a post COVID-19 world.

Taking place across three two-hour sessions, the Summit will centralize around three pillars - Live & Move, Care & Engage, Work & Invest. Each pillar will allow participants and audiences to explore topics that will reimage sustainable development and open up social, economic and technological opportunities for delivering a green recovery.

Hosted by Masdar, the virtual ADSW Summit is in partnership with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the Atlantic Council and Abu Dhabi Global Market.
