Sustainability’s Place in a Post-Lockdown World

14.30 - 15.30 | July 9, 2020 | FREE for PPA Members

PPA Webinar with The Condé Nast Publications , Haymarket Media Group and Incisive Media

Just a few months ago, there was one item at the top of the political agenda: climate change. Greta Thunberg dominated the headlines and our global leaders gathered at Davos for the World Economic Forum’s annual conference under the theme of ‘Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World’.

Since then, agendas have changed. Now, as we begin to emerge into a post-lockdown world, this PPA Live! session explores how the sustainability agenda has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and should be integral to the economic recovery as we rebuild.

Publishers have made great strides in this area in recent years, and we ask our expert panel for their thoughts on the strategies and initiatives that companies will be adopting to reinvigorate or even accelerate that momentum in 2020 and beyond.
