Virtual Sustainable Action Dialogues

The World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS) is the annual flagship event of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). Instituted in 2001, the Summit series has marked 20 years in its journey of making ‘sustainable development’ a globally shared goal.

Given the current global health crisis and its close inter linkage with climate impact, the WSDS 2021 will be held under the umbrella theme of ‘Redefining Our Common Future: Safe and Secure Environment for All’. Discussions at the platform will focus on the current crisis and the roadmap that nations need to adopt enroute a greener recovery.

We have planned for a series of virtual dialogues between now and February, 2021. The first virtual dialogue was held on the eve of the World Environment Day 4th June, 2020. The occasion also marked the launch of a very special initiative underlining the role of youth, ‘Youth Unite for a Safe and Secure Environment for All’.
