ISO Week 2019 is your opportunity to join fellow ISO membersin putting standards at the heart of the Global Agenda and defining the strategies that will guide our organization to 2030.
Our world faces complex global questions and uncertainty about how to proceed.
Now, more than ever, it’s time for International Standards.
ISO Week 2019 will take us further on the journey that began with establishing a clear role for standards in supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The challenge that we now share is to evolve our strategy to realize our full potential to contribute to a better future through widespread awareness and use of International Standards.
Thought-provoking presenters, interactive workshops, and the opportunity to build networks across the global standards community are just some of the ways that ISO Week 2019 will set our organization on the path to 2030.
Climate change, population growth, and pressure on resources threaten to undermine some of the advances that have been made since ISO was founded. ISO Week 2019 is the chance to reinforce the relevance of our organization to today's global agenda.
Standards used everywhere is a big part of realizing the 2030 Agenda. At a time when sustainable infrastructure, multilateral trade and a common technical language are needed, developing a focused and effective strategy is more important than ever.
Molo! Sawubona! Dumela! Goie Dag!
