HLPF-2
The second day of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF-2) under the auspices of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) started with a presentation of a prototype Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR). Moderated dialogues took place on: how to improve the conversation between science and policy: scope and methodology of a global sustainable development report; ideas and trends that can shape the lives of present and future generations; island voices, global choices: promoting genuine and durable partnerships; and countries in special situations: building resilience.
The Trusteeship Council Chamber, venue of HLPF-2, was a gift from Denmark to the UN.
This wooden statue of a woman with her arms outstretched in the Chamber,
by Danish artist Henrik Starcke, suggests "unlimited flight upwards to greater heights.”
