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 organising the SDG Roadshow 2018, comprised of another series of 11 Making Global Goals Local Business events in cities across the UK.
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 company (and every citizen) needs to understand this important global megatrend!
By attending a Making Global Goals Local Business event, you will learn:
- What the Global Goals are.
- Why business should care about the Goals.
- How business can 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.
