The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened societal divides, with disproportionate impacts on the poor and vulnerable, and undermined community cohesion. Yet, the pandemic also shone a light on how digital infrastructure and technology can bridge seemingly impossible gaps. With the world reawakening and economic activity rebounding, sustainable infrastructure in emerging markets will play a critical role in ensuring an inclusive recovery and a more equitable future.
To address these challenges, we will explore:
How can we use TECHNOLOGY to foster ethical and equitable advancement? How can we build TRUST and mutual understanding to lessen divides, resolve differences, and address disparities? What TRANSFORMATION is needed for society to become more equal, prosperous, and resilient?
Join us on June 9 to explore the themes Technology, Trust, Transformation at IFC’s 2021 virtual Sustainability Exchange—our annual global convening of infrastructure companies, local leaders, youth game changers, women pioneers, creative visionaries, and civil society champions. For this exciting event, we’re bringing together a dynamic group of speakers, who will share experience and insights, pragmatic approaches, and creative collaborations. We’ll look at mega-trends and do some deep industry dives, with a focus on:
- Climate change and energy transitions
- Local community impacts and development
- Urban transit and smart mobility
- Transparency, connectivity, voice, and responsible leadership
- Gender equality and youth inclusion
Don’t miss out! It’s your opportunity to be part of a unique gathering of sustainability change-makers—from across industry, science, arts, culture, activism, and public policy.
