Joint GlassTrend–IYOG 2022 events
The GlassTrend Board and the Organizing Committee of the International Year of Glass 2022 have announced a cooperation to offer a joint GlassTrend–IYOG 2022 series of events.
These will illustrate how the United Nations Development Goals (UNDGs) are supported by glass. It is a wonderful example of international cooperation covering UNDG-17 ‘Partnerships for the goals’.
The upcoming agenda includes:
18 January at 13.00 CET: The first event of the series will be a webinar where Dr. Hong Li from NEG will present a talk on ‘The chemical approach to ultra-high-modulus fiberglass’ that is linked to the UNDG Affordable & Clean Energy.
10 February: CelSian’s Dr. Corinne Claireaux will give a lecture during the Opening Ceremony of IYOG 2022 in Geneva to highlight the UNDGs 4 ‘Quality Education’ and 5 ‘Gender Equality’.
Future events will be dedicated to the other seven UNDGs comprising: good health and well-being; clean water and sanitation; affordable and clean energy; industry, innovation and infrastructure; responsible consumption and production; climate action; and life below water.
