OVER 200 PROFESSIONALS CAME together AGAIN to talk about the future of sustainability in the V4
V4SDG organised the second Budapest Sustainability Exchange from 1-2 October 2021, a unique event where sustainability experts and leaders exchanged ideas on harnessing sustainability to strengthen our region. We welcomed NGOs, governmental actors, businesses and academia brainstorming on the greatest challenge of the 21st century.
This year, our theme was “Regional Cooperation Reimagined”. It drew inspiration from a package of 15 proposals V4SDG recently published, the “V4 Vision for Sustainability”, written to spark dialogue on turning the V4 into a sustainability-based cooperation.
