Background

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the UN as the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. While the SDGs address the global challenges that we face, the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us that crises, from hazards to disasters to emergencies, could easily throw us off our path towards a sustainable future. Schools and students are called on to contribute innovative ideas on how to integrate resilience in sustainable development before a crisis, how to maintain sustainable development during a crisis, and how to incorporate mitigation into the recovery process after a crisis.
