Universal access to vaccines and health care, growing inequalities and poverty, the worst recession since WWII and skyrocketing debt. These are the challenges and legacies of the pandemic, which go hand in hand with long-standing trends, from climate change to digital transformation. What to expect from the international community to address these unprecedented challenges? What are the priorities and possible deliverables of the G20 as the major multilateral forum chaired by Italy in 2021?
High-level personalities and top experts worldwide will come together to answer these questions on the occasion of the Think20 (T20) Italy Virtual Inception Conference. Among others, participants include: Paolo Gentiloni (European Commissioner for Economy), Virginia Gamba (Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict), Jeffrey Sachs (Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University), Emma Bonino (former European Commissioner and Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs), Alicia Bárcena (Executive Secretary, Economic Commission for Latin America and the Carrabean – CEPAL), Fatih Birol (Executive Director, International Energy Agency- IEA)
