Event Details

The Global Goals 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.

After the largest public consultation ever undertaken, the Goals were adopted by the UK and the other 192 Member States of the United Nations in 2015. They call for economic growth, innovation, affordable energy, and upgraded infrastructure - and provide a path to end extreme poverty, fight inequality, and protect the planet.

Every company (and every citizen) needs to understand this important global mega-trend!

  • What are the Global Goals?
  • Why should business care about the Goals?
  • How can business contribute to achieving the Goals and benefit from doing so?

 Join us at Making Global Goals Local Business - Bristol to find out.
