Global Goals Roadshow 2021
Our programme partners,
Connecting with local organisations and delving into the SDGs was the focus of our 2021 'Making Global Goals Local Business' Roadshow.
Since 2017, the UN Global Compact Network UK has travelled across the UK to connect sustainability practitioners, inspire action on the SDGs, and equip you with the knowledge and skills to effectively engage with Agenda 2030. This year was no different, with 7 city stops throughout October, to bring together hundreds of stakeholders to accelerate action on the SDGs. In the lead up to COP26, these events allowed participants to dive into developing a whole systems approach to delivering the Global Goals and develop an understanding of how to lead action for Agenda 2030. Regional events hope to build collaborative networks with neighbouring businesses, local authorities, and civil society organisations in your area.
Empowering participants to take the next steps in their sustainability journey, form long-lasting partnerships, catalyse change through organisations, and ignite innovation to build back better and create the future we want. Our aim was that the workshops enabled participants to:
- Connect with like-minded sustainability practitioners and professionals;
- Develop a better understanding of the context of your organisation in relation to specific Goals;
- Practice your influencing skills to engage others and build interest;
- Learn from local peers and come away with tangible actions to help you on your SDG journey;
- Renew your energy and passion for delivering the Goals.
Taking place over a half-day online event, the programme featured a diverse range of inspirational talks, practical workshops, and networking opportunities. Developed in collaboration with Impact, our dynamic and insightful events explored the SDGs and the need for increased business ambition to deliver this agenda. Deep dives into practical action that you can take to support the entire SDG Agenda through interactive breakout sessions focused on themes such as integrating sustainability into your organisation, going Net Zero, engaging in the circular economy, sustainability reporting, implementing a Living Wage, and developing effective D&I strategies. A concluding panel heard from local sustainability leaders and throughout the event there was an opportunity for regional networking.
*Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to cancel our event scheduled for Cardiff on October 14th. We apologise for any inconvenience and encourage interested parties from Wales to join one of our other sessions.
