Webinar series on the 2030 Agenda

This session is part of a webinar series on the topic of the 2030 Agenda and the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Malnutrition, climate change and no access to electricity, water, data 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 contribute.

We are offering a series of webinars on the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs by introducing related topics, explaining the background and, thus, enabling you to understand, join the discussion and to take specific action.

The 2030 Agenda, which includes 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), offers a lot of opportunities for indivduals to show solidarity. How? Visit our section “THE GLOBAL GOALS – powered by Alumni”!
