Concept note:
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fault lines in our system - even in the world's most advanced nations. With 2020 marking the onset of the "Last Decade of Action" for the SDGs, it is time to ensure that employment and education opportunities do not recede further from the reach of those who need it the most. This side event will seek to identify the actions needed to achieve the SDGs and secure a Life of Dignity for All.
