SDG Forum 2020
From everyone, for everyone, by everyone.
After successful previous editions of the SDG Forum, a third one had to follow. The SDG Forum 2020 is taking place on Thursday 29 October in Tour & Taxis.
This year, both the SDG Forum and G-STIC are part of the SDG Week. More info will follow shortly.
The central thread through all of this remains ‘SDGs: From everyone, for everyone and By everyone’.
On 25 September 2015, all 193 UN member states, on behalf of their populations, signed a new agenda with 2030 as its horizon. It contains seventeen goals - the Sustainable Development Goals - to get our world back on track towards sustainable development.
The SDGs aim to tackle the most important, global challenges in social, economic and ecological terms. They thereby have a strong emphasis on the principle of leaving no-one behind. If these goals are not achieved, this will come at a cost to the planet, to ourselves and mostly for future generations.
The SDGs are largely an ‘us’ story. Every individual, every business, every organisation, every authority at any level, has something to contribute and they should ideally do so together. The SDGs break with the pigeon-holing of the past and will ideally lead to unexpected partnerships to help rid the world of the concerns that we share.
