Event description

Description


This round table discussion will look at the way in which the pre Brexit period November 2018 to March 2019 has played out on organisations’ ability to focus on or develop their thinking and actions on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As recent reports on climate change have sent out warnings of the need to act now to mitigate catastrophic impacts on the world, is the priority given to the SDGs in policy development and behavioural change less on the agenda in the UK compared to organisations’ general concern of an uncertain future?

This event uses some recent research based at London South Bank University by Dr Alex Mifsud and Lynn Vickery, incorporating opinions from a small number of UK organisations on the priority given to SDGs in the context of Brexit and poses the question ‘Can the SDG’s be seen as a key framework to be used across UK organisations to help guide the post Brexit decision making?’

Contributers will include Emily Auckland, Network Director & Co-chair of the UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD)' a cross-sector network of organisations who work together to drive action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the UK.

Refreshments will be provided
