Wrapping Up 2020: A Playlist

  • 2020/12/23     Dresden, Germany

    2020 has been nothing short of eventful – even if the entire world has had to spend most of the year at home. At UNU-FLORES, we have been fortunate to be able to continue business-almost-as-usual.

    1. Earth Day

    Through the difficult period of a global pandemic, we have only strengthened our resolve towards climate action by advancing the Resource Nexus. Besides launching several research projects this year, our experts continue doing their parts for the planet – also from home.

    2. Dresden Nexus Conference 2020

    In our efforts to bridge science and policy and across different sectors, we brought different stakeholders together onto one platform at the virtual Dresden Nexus Conference 2020 to discuss “Circular Economy in a Sustainable Society”.

    3. UN Day Dresden 2020

    At UNU-FLORES, we strive to also bridge local and international agendas. This year’s UN Day celebrations took a digital format, but not with less rigour. Local and international experts discussed “Biodiversity” and how concerted efforts are critical to preserving it.

    All of our endeavours would not have been possible without the support of our donors, partners, and you. For your undying faith in our work throughout a global test of resilience, we sincerely thank you. We look forward to continuing working with you to build back better, stronger, and greener.

    Until then, we wish you a safe, restful, and well-deserved break this holiday season.

    From all of us at UNU-FLORES
