In a changing post-Covid world, how can we co-think sustainability, urbanisation and technology?

The first pandemic of the 21st century has changed the way we live. It has hit all nations hard. It has compelled us to rethink existing systems and has, more than ever, highlighted the need for co-thinking, collaboration and co-development for a better future. This year’s seminar series Engaging India at Almedalen 2021: Future Urbanisms is being held in the context of a changing, pandemic impacted world.

India's Ambassador to Sweden H.E. Tanmaya Lal will give the opening address, followed by the keynote address by Uday Shankar, President of Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).

Join the conversation with policy and industry experts, academic and thought leaders from Sweden and India on this year's theme, 'Innovation & Sustainability: What India and Sweden can learn from each other.
