Redefining sustainability in an unsustainable world

In the wake of the covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion in Ukraine, the need to redefine the concept of sustainability on a global basis has arisen. New big challenges emerge, such as disruption in the energy sector, the threat of a food crisis, new refugee flows, restructuring of public health systems, changes in the workplace and labour relations.

  • What changes are needed in terms of production, trade and food consumption?
  • Is there risk of a decarbonisation reversal?
  • Is nuclear energy a solution to the explosion of energy prices?
