Sustainable Development Goals Roadshow 2018 for the UK
We have now reached the end of a greatly successful SDG Roadshow 2018, comprised of a series of 11 Making Global Goals Local Business events across the UK.
- Over 8000 people interested.
- 604 attendees.
- 70 speakers.
- 31 local partners.
By attending SDG Roadshow events, delegates were able to develop an understanding of:
- What the Global Goals are.
- Why should business care about them.
- How can business contribute to achieving the Goals and benefit from doing so.
On the SDGs:
After the largest public consultation ever undertaken, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015 by the UK and the other 192 member states of the United Nations. At the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, they call for economic growth, innovation, circular economies and upgraded infrastructure, as well as providing a path to end extreme poverty, fight inequality, and protect the planet.
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.
Every organisation and individual can benefit from understanding this vital global agenda!
Feel free to explore the resources on business and the SDGs that the UN Global Compact has developed.
