Research to Action: Enhancing Equality, Equity, and Access to Basic Goods and Services

March 2 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

George Mason University’s Institute for a Sustainable Earth (ISE) and Business for a Better World Center are co-hosting this webinar on Equality, Equity, and Access to Basic Goods and Services as part of ISE’s Research to Action webinar series. This series is designed to explore the intersecting dimensions of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), discuss the interactions between research and practice, and inspire novel collaborations to identify solutions. This panel discussion will focus on how researchers and practitioners are working together to address local and global disparities that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to threaten the security of hundreds of millions. The speakers will highlight ongoing efforts aimed at reducing inequality (SDG 5 and SDG 10), enhancing equity, and ensuring access to basic goods and services for everyone – including ending poverty (SDG 1), eliminating hunger (SDG 2), and ensuring access to clean water and sanitation (SDG 6).
