COMING UP IN 2022

ECONOMY

Here you’ll find all the content relating to the economy sector that was covered at #SCEWC22.

ECONOMY

In September 2021, OECD countries and key partner economies increased public spending on green recovery measures to $677 billion (up from $336 billion in April 2021). While this is welcome news, is it enough to have the transformational effects needed to address environmental crises while building back a more inclusive economy? What’s more, are we able to design a system to improve things? Different financing tools and economic models, such as the sharing economy and the circular economy, open interesting paths to develop activities that are distributive and generative from the start. What are the key elements to rethink the way we work and consequent strategies for economic growth in the post-pandemic world?
