2020INGO 新.jpg

Introduction

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic affects the world. The global industries get hit severely, regardless of industry and commerce, transportation, medical care, people's livelihood, and tourism. In response to the current situation, the “2020 UNINGO in Taiwan” focuses on environmental sustainability in the post-epidemic era. It invites Taiwanese policy makers, representatives of NGOs, and scholars to have online discussion. It aims to understand current environmental issues, for instance, the impact of the pandemic on environment, and to give suggestions for the global environmental sustainability. By doing so, it hopes to lead Taiwanese people to understand and be aware of the importance of sustainability, to improve the community cooperation, and to respond to the SDGs.
