Event description
Sustainability Showcase - Hot Topics and the SDGs

About 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/
