The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) invites you to join our networks around the world, around the clock for a 24-hour webinar event, Happiness & Sustainability Around the Earth, on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day anniversary, Wednesday, April 22. During this 24-hour webinar, we will circumnavigate the globe to navigate happiness, well-being, and sustainability amongst COVID-19.

In this stressful and uncertain time, it is important to stay socially connected, while maintaining physical distancing. Happiness and well-being is something all humans share in common, and it is achieved through connecting with one another. According to the World Happiness Report, happiness is a better measure of a nation’s progress than GDP and using social well-being as a goal drives better public policy.

This 24-hour webinar will give us an opportunity to:

  • Engage with experts and community leaders on how various sustainable development initiatives across the globe are creating a more just and thriving society
  • Explore how the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) are being met across 13 regions and networks
  • Discuss how happiness is still alive amidst a global pandemic

SDSN Italy is taking part in the initiative with a live session starting at 17:00 CET. Enrico Giovannini, Professor of Statistics at Rome Tor Vergata University and spokesman of the Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development (ASviS) will talk about the 2030 Agenda and the COVID-19 crisis: Indicators, Evaluations and Frameworks for Policy Design in the Italian Experience.

Explore what will change in the Italian and global context due to the health emergency.
