About the Event
Sustainable Development Goals - What? Why? And how?
Do you know how you can help those that need it the most? Do you want to develop connections and understanding outside of your chosen discipline? We believe that when people with different perspectives come together with an open mind, amazing things happen. This is the power of interdisciplinary and intergenerational collaboration!
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals that each country is aiming to achieve by 2030 to improve the lives of their citizens. The strength of the SDG framework lies in the interlinkages between the SDGs. A systems change approach to the SDGs recognises the systemic interconnections, trade-offs, and seeks to address challenges within a holistic approach. These approaches can help drive us towards transformational change.
We are bringing together young people and practitioners from all backgrounds who want to use their skills and experience to make a difference. We will partner with industry leaders for guidance, and provide capacity building and leadership development. We will leave the leadership in the hands of the youth that want to achieve the SDGs. We don’t know where this will go yet but we believe that by bringing challenges to smart and committed people they will create exciting and innovative solutions.
