Sustainable Development Goals

Good Health and Well-Being

Major progress has been made in improving the health of people, but, progress has stalled or is not happening fast enough with regard to addressing many major diseases. Concerted efforts are required to achieve universal health coverage; sustainable financing for health and improved mental health outcomes. We will look at the role of such drivers as Sport to enhance good health and well-being.

Workshop Co-Leads to be announced soon.

 

Sustainable Development Goals

Responsible Consumption and Production

Governments, civil society and the business sector must work together to contribute to changing unsustainable consumption and production patterns. There has been some progress in developing policies, knowledge, resources and technical tools, but applying and implementing these to foster tangible changes in practices and impacts remains limited. We will look at partnerships to bring about real change.

Workshop Co-Leads to be announced soon.

 

Sustainable Development Goals

Emerging technologies for the SDGs

Technology and innovation are vital components in the implementation of the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). If harnessed effectively, emerging technologies will aid in overcoming barriers to sustainable development challenges locally and globally and enable sustainable partnerships to develop and flourish.

 

Workshop Co-Leads to be announced soon.

 

Sustainable Development Goals

Future of Work

The SDGs promote sustained economic growth, higher levels of productivity and technological innovation – all with the aim of achieving full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men by 2030. The provision of responsive and appropriate training and skills will be vital to this agenda, along with partnerships to drive new opportunities.
