Lunch with Professor Jeffrey Sachs
The Global Foundation was pleased to welcome Professor Jeffrey Sachs, a world-renowned expert and advocate of sustainable development, as our guest of honour at an intimate lunch held in Melbourne, Australia, on 12 October 2023.
Hailing from the United States, Professor Sachs is a long-time friend of the Foundation who currently serves as President of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network and Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University.
At the Melbourne lunch he provided valuable contributions to the Foundation’s ongoing discussion program on global governance reform, building upon the Dialogue Between Civilizations on Global Commons held at the Vatican in June 2023, at which Professor Sachs and our Secretary General, Steve Howard, were co-chairs and co-convenors.
The Melbourne lunch was kindly hosted by Ian Fraser, CEO APAC at GHD, a Partner of the Global Foundation, and attended by a cross-section of representatives from business, universities, faiths, and the not-for-profit sector.
