International Supply Chains and Fair Labor (SDG 8)


In this event, from 27 April 2021, we continued our SDG event series with SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth). For this event, we were able to win Uwe Kekeritz (former member of the Bundestag and Vice President of the Committee on Economic Cooperation and Development & development policy spokesman of the Bundestag parliamentary group BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN) and Ulrich Scharf (founder and CEO of SkillLab) as guests. We talked to them about the topic “International Supply Chains and Fair Labor”.
