In 2015, the United Nations unanimously adopted an agenda for global transformation. Seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set out the comprehensive scope of the Agenda, with an ambition that its targets be achieved by 2030.
Meeting the challenge of the UN Global Agenda demands collaboration between governments but also across sectors. Considerable work is also necessary to understand how action on the different SDGs overlaps. Much is yet to be learned about how the necessary collaboration can be developed and sustained.
You are invited to join partners from Australia (EU Centre at RMIT and Australian National University), Scotland (University of Glasgow) and New Zealand (NCRE University of Canterbury) in a Policy Dialogue on Wednesday 26 February 2020, between 9.30am–2.00pm. Presenters will discuss these issues and explore ways of supporting collaboration and cohesive approaches to the implementation of the UN’s 2030 Agenda, as articulated in the 17 SDGs.
