The United Nations established Sustainable Development Goal 8 to “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work” with ambitious targets like reducing inequality and realizing  sustainable growth by 2030. Flash forward to 2020 and the Coronavirus has amplified precarious work in developed and developing countries alike.  An inclusive economy with decent work will require policy changes, financial incentives and creative solutions to the  increasing consolidation and monopolization within the business world. This panel will explore pathways to resilient and inclusive working communities that can meet the social and environmental challenges ahead.


Les Nations Unies ont établi l'Objectif de développement durable 8 pour «promouvoir une croissance économique soutenue, inclusive et durable, le plein emploi productif et un travail décent» avec des objectifs ambitieux comme la réduction des inégalités et la réalisation d'une croissance durable d'ici 2030. Flash en avant pour 2020 et le Coronavirus a amplifié la précarité dans les pays développés comme dans les pays en développement. Une économie inclusive avec un travail décent nécessitera des changements de politique, des incitations financières et des solutions créatives à la consolidation et à la monopolisation croissantes dans le monde des affaires. Ce panel explorera les voies vers des communautés de travail résilientes et inclusives qui peuvent relever les défis sociaux et environnementaux à venir.
