Over the course of the next couple of months, Brookings Global will host a webinar series “Voices from the Field: Cities Leading on Sustainability in the COVID-19 Era” that consists of 30-minute one-on-one conversations with city leaders from our SDG Leadership Cities community of practice.
Please join me for my first conversation with Sanna-Mari Jäntti, the director of Strategic Initiatives in the City of Helsinki Mayor's Office, on Wednesday, May 6 at 11 am (ET) / 6 pm (GMT+3).
The informal format of these fireside conversations will enable us to explore a city-specific perspective on the COVID-19 crisis. The discussions will examine the importance of local leadership during the crisis, and how cities are thinking about sustainable development priorities and adapting their strategy as they begin to plan for recovery.
This webinar session will take place via Zoom. Register in advance for this webinar using this link. We will invite questions and comments from the audience during the session.
I look forward to you joining us next Wednesday.
