Former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, said of the UN Global Goals, they are the ‘blueprint for a better world’. The Goals have a completion target of 2030 – but what happens next? The new Resilience Frontiers project is working to answer that question.

The interagency initiative has been launched over the past few days during the Korea Global Adaptation Week events in Songdo. Today’s programme revisited the ‘moonshot’ methodology to develop ideas that can move us beyond 2030. Harald Neidhardt, CEO & Curator of Futur/io – the creator of the methodology – spoke to us about his sense of how it has been going.

This is just the beginning of a new global movement though, one which will bring people together with the aim of pinpointing inspiring pathways towards desirable futures for everyone. Brainstorming big ideas this week for how our planet should best harness the reality of emerging technologies – and changing societal behaviour – to thrive in the face of climate change, is just the beginning. We will have all the outcomes from these beginnings, with takeaways and video coverage shortly. Sign up for our updates to get it all straight to your inbox.

Resilience Frontiers is an interagency effort undertaken by the UNFCCC secretariat in collaboration with Canada’s International Development Research Centre, EIT Climate-KIC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Global Water Partnership, the Green Climate Fund, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
