35 Days to the next City Symposium

The first Sustainable Development Goal says, "End poverty in all its forms everywhere." The next City Symposium is coming up on Monday, September 14, and will explore the question: What needs to happen to end poverty in our city? This will be a virtual, online event. Mark the date in your calendar and watch this newsletter for more details (coming soon).

"New research published by the UNU World Institute for Development Economics Research warns that the economic fallout from the global pandemic could increase global poverty by as much as half a billion people, or 8% of the total human population. This would be the first time that poverty has increased globally in thirty years, since 1990." UN SDG 1: No Poverty
