As humanity strives to meet the multiple challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals remains crucial. The pandemic has created many fronts and we are undoubtedly facing a global crisis with multiple –and possibly still unknown– consequences.
• To what extent has the pandemic affected the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development?
• What are the priorities for sustainable development in a pandemic world?
• What are the new realities that we had never imagined before?

Within this context, The Economist Events in partnership with SDSN Europe, SDSN Greece and Climate Kic have great pleasure in announcing the organisation of the Fifth Sustainability Summit for south-east Europe and the Mediterranean.
