What does Partnership for the Goals mean in practice? SDG 17 answered!

The event is free and appropriate for professionals engaged in sustainability and social impact work inside corporations, nonprofits, agencies or public entities around the world.


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals has ushered in a new era of global development objectives to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years: end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice and fix climate change. How can the private sector be an active contributor to this agenda, inspire innovation to address some of the world’s most challenging issues and support the sustainable development of emerging markets? This webinar will highlight the huge potential of private sector innovation and collaboration, and explore the role of government in supporting these breakthroughs to create a more sustainable economy and world.
