论坛主题
Forum Theme

可持续发展已经是当今世界主流价值观之一,不管是个人的人生规划、企业的商业发展还是国家的战略规划,可持续发展都是最重要的关键词之一。在宏观层面,以17个可持续发展目标为核心的《2030可持续发展议程》在2015年得到了所有联合国成员国的一致通过。在微观层面,个人,组织和企业也在其所在的领域探索可持续发展之路。今年的论坛,我们将关注“可持续发展”这个关键词,邀请来自不同领域、不同文化以及不同专业背景的嘉宾来分享他们在可持续发展方面的见解,并分享他们所做的项目、案例及其背后的故事。希望通过嘉宾的分享,引导大家对可持续发展有更深入的认识、新的思考以及行动。

Sustainable development is becoming one of the mainstream values of our society. On the wider scale, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been adopted by all UN members since 2015, with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core, while individuals, organizations, and corporations are also exploring paths for sustainable development in their respective scopes. This year’s forum focuses on sustainability in different aspects related to the maker community. We invite speakers from different sectors, cultures, and professional backgrounds to share their projects, stories and insights in sustainable development. In this way, we hope to shed some light on the topic of sustainability to promote a broader understanding and one day lead to collective actions on sustainable development.
