Goal 12 is one of the busiest at www.theglobalacademy.ac with 54 (and counting) researchers working around the world to help us ensure responsible production and consumption by 2030. It’s also the focus of our first researchers event.

We have planned activities spread over 3 days with a maximum of 3 hours each day to make the event accessible worldwide. Each day stands alone together with links that run through the whole event. Each session will be available both live, in real time, and recorded for access from other time zones
