The Agenda 2030 – Dealing with Grand Challenges for Mankind
In September 2015, countries agreed on a new sustainable development agenda in order to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all by the year 2030. In the lecture series, experts from a variety of academic disciplines will analyze the most important grand challenges involved in this ambitious agenda. They will explore trends with regard to social protection, greenhouse-gas emissions, land scarcity, inequality, IT-driven automation and employment as well as poverty and discuss what it takes to achieve sustainable development for all. The lecture series is organized by the Coordination Unit "Sustainable Development in International Cooperation" of the University of Bonn and the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE).
