How COVID-19 might help us win the battle
The response to COVID-19 illustrates a number of actions we can take to address global climate change. As the significance of the pandemic dawns on us, it becomes increasingly clear we have to make people the priority, listen to global perspectives and trust experts.
Energy sector needs to draw on all talents
Gender diversity is vital for driving innovative and inclusive solutions for clean energy transitions all over the world. With women accounting for less than 30% of the labour force, the energy sector needs to shift the dial to deliver a sustainable energy future for all.
First-ever global standard developed
With growing concerns over biodiversity and climate change, nature-based solutions get increasing recognition as a necessity for achieving the SDGs. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) will launch the first-ever global standard in June.
Urging schools for sustainable business education
Impatient for transformational solutions, sustainability-focused student leaders in Canada have joined forces. Mobilising youth, they urge business schools to modernise how they teach about the climate crisis, income inequality and related issues.
