Due Care: Global Development in Times of Accelerated Change

The world is running out of time to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by their target of 2030. The intersecting crises of conflict, climate change, and COVID-19 have stretched resources far too thin. Prior to the pandemic, the world was already falling behind in its effort to reach the SDGs. Now, some areas are walking back hard won progress. Looking ahead, we will need to work much faster, much harder, and much more creatively if we are to meet these essential goals.

Join us in discussion at the intersection of fast action and deep thinking. Discover promising new solutions, and meet the inspiring young people behind them who have refused to slow down in the face of stagnating global progress despite accelerated displacement, climate change, and technological advancements. Hear directly from those who are leading change on how we can best support them to responsibly sustain and scale their efforts and get the global community back on track toward a more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable future for us all.

Join us at the 2023 WUSC International Forum as we explore how to continue to advance responsible development during times of accelerated change. Connect with a wide range of actors—including civil society members from the global South, students and youth leaders, representatives from the government and private sector, researchers, and international development specialists—in discussions on some of the most pressing issues, challenges, and solutions in global development.
