Event description
Sustainability Showcase - Hot Topics and the SDGs

About this Event

At this event, we'll be providing an overview of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), covering what they are, how to understand them and how to use them, with some local examples of work towards them.

The17 SDGs are a call to action by the United Nations, to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs aim to address a range of issues and are all interconnected. More details can be found at: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/

On 12th February, Kate Copeland and PK Whelan (picture below) from Sustainable Society will share a concise introduction to the SDGs and how we can use them to create impact in our work.

Other guest speakers will share details of their innovative projects and/or impactful work that is actively addressing the challenges posed by the SDGs.
