What is the 2030 Agenda, what are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)?

Live-Steam: 20 April 2017
Recording of the live stream available!

Malnutrition, climate change and no access to electricity, water or the internet: These are some of the problems that are intended to be solved in a joint effort by 2030. The world has to become more just and everyone can make a contribution. How familiar are you with the 2030 Agenda, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and their sub-goals? Do you have ideas about what your contribution to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda could be?

We are offering a series of web-seminars on the 2030 Agenda and the 17 SDGs which will give an introduction to the topic, explain the background and point out concrete ways of contributing. These web-seminars will enable you to join the discussion and to take specific action.

Target group:
Germany-Alumni who are interested in sustainability and any other alumni

Patrick van Weerelt, Head of Office, UN System Staff College Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development, Bonn (Germany) will give you an insight into the Agenda and its holistic development approach. This approach considers economic, social and ecological aspects as equally important and demands that human rights, the rule of law, good governance, peace and security are upheld.

The web-seminar was held in English.

Thank you very much for your comments. We are happy to read that you like and appreciate our information and input on the 2030 Agenda and its 17 goals, not only through our webinar on 20 April, but also on other relevant information. It's also great to hear about your personal activities and how you "take action". Please feel free to share this in our "Sustainability Community" on the Alumniportal Deutschland. We are looking forward to meeting all of you in the webinar, please note that the webinar will be recorded and uploaded later, meaning that if you cannot join personally, you will definitely be able to listen and watch the webinar recording later.

I appreciate the efforts of the AlumniPortal. It is very crutial for all of us to get familiarized with the SDG if we wish to see them accomplished. I suggest not to look to 2030 as being far... for us to reach the goals we need to start right now or yesterday, last year... as time already started counting. I am doing my part and each of us need to do something. Even if people are going to consider "a drop in the ocean" what one will be doing... We need to know that the ocean could be smaller without that drop. I wish to thank the organizers. I am sure we will expand our knowledge and it is an opportunity to clarify lot of contents. Please let us not forget to make the different goals discuss because some they do depend on each other to be fulfilled.
