„Future Talks: The Future of Work“ is an event organised on Tuesday, 5 October, in hybrid format. The “Future Talks” are a series of virtual conversations conducted by the UNDP Accelerator Lab in Bosnia and Herzegovina to collect unique perspectives and forward-thinking solutions to pressing issues of our time, assisting in imagining a brighter and more sustainable future. This Future Talks session will present emerging approaches that re-imagine the world of work.
On the third day of the SDG Week, 6 October, the conference “Greening the Economy” will be held, also in hybrid format. The aim of the event is to bring together businesses and financial institutions to discuss what a green transition entails for the private sector and to deepen the understanding of the benefits of investing in green solutions. Private sector and the financial institutions will discuss the advantages of a green economy, but also the status of green finance in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The event „Future of Education: Universities 4.0“, to be held on 7 October, will involve young people and students in a dialogue on new directions and tools that education needs to embrace for sustainable living and work. This year, the principal partners of the event are Sarajevo School of Science and Technology (SSST) and The School of Economics and Business of University of Sarajevo, in cooperation with other public universities in BIH.
The SDG week will close with the signing of the Pledge for Sustainable Development. The previous winners of the SDG Business Pioneer Awards 2019-2021 will be offered to sign the Pledge inspired by similar action in Sweden, showing their commitment to sustainable development and inspiring others.
