June 30, 2022 /3BL Media/ - On 21st June, the global sustainability community came together to explore the future of sustainability, and the need for more collaborative, inclusive efforts to advance sustainable development. The event was a 24-hour continuous, online webinar, with 24 different panels and topics featuring over 90 speakers from around the world, who explored the current state of sustainability and began to outline a revived roadmap to help us navigate towards a better future. Over 1,300 people attended the web-a-thon and tens of thousands visited the event website.

The event and ongoing fundraising campaign aims to provide vital financial support for local NGOs in Ukraine that have been devastated by the war. Since the war began, offices of local NGOs have been damaged, employees have gone without pay and, many organizations are struggling to keep operating without outside funding.

So far, through the generous support from our corporate sponsors and individual donations made online, we have been able to raise over $170k to help rebuild civil society in Ukraine. We are looking to raise an additional $80K to bring the total of contributions to $250k.

Please donate either as an organization or individual so we can achieve our target and help our brothers and sisters working in sustainability in Ukraine. You can donate online here: https://dobro.ua/en/reserve_fund/sustainability4ukraine

Partners included: 3BL Media, Akatu Institute (Brazil), AuctusESG (India), B Lab, Business Council for the United Nations, BBMG, BSR, Business Fights Poverty, Business Leaders Forum, CBSR (Canada), CSR Europe, CSR Ukraine, ELEVATE, Forum for the Future, GlobeScan, GreenBiz, GRI, Maala (Israel), Net Positive, ReThink (Hong Kong), SB Japan, SB Thailand, Sustainability Connect (Singapore), and WWF.
