Sustainable Development Goals Roadshow 2018 for the UK

Building on the success of the SDG Roadshow 2017, the UN Global Compact Network UK is currently in the process of organising the SDG Roadshow 2018, comprised of another series of Making Global Goals Local Business events in cities across the UK.

The Global Goals were hailed as a ‘paradigm shift for people and planet’ by former Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon. They are going to transform our world and that transformation will create opportunities for new business models to deliver new products and services into new markets.

After the largest public consultation ever undertaken, the Goals were adopted by the UK and the other 192 member states of the United Nations in 2015. They call for economic growth, innovation, affordable energy and upgraded infrastructure, as well as providing a path to end extreme poverty, fight inequality, and protect the planet.

Every company (and every citizen) needs to understand this important global megatrend!

By attending a Making Global Goals Local Business event, you will learn:

  • What are the Global Goals?
  • Why should business care about the Goals?
  • How can business effectively contribute to achieving the Goals and benefit from doing so?

Making Global Goals Local Business events will feature local business people speaking about how they are already aligning their activities and strategies with the Goals.

Please get in touch if you would like to host a Roadshow event or become a sponsor. 

SDG Roadshow 2017 event reports can be consulted in our past events.
