We can only realize the SDGs with strong global partnerships and cooperation. To date, a coordinated effort (Local2030) has taken place to raise-awareness, advocate, and implement SDG work at the local level with the aim of ultimately developing localized monitoring and next steps for individuals projects and locations that will help structure the global SDG framework.
In this 11th webinar of a series on issues related to the Sustainable Development Goals, Irena Zubcevic from the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) will discuss how global agreement on SDGs contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can be translated to local levels to implement SDGs at the community level, including some discussions she has had with the UMN SDG Initiative team on how to broaden and upscale our communities SDG work. Comments and discussion will focus on transformative change SDG implementation can bring to our societies and communities including in the sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic to create more equal societies through nature-positive policies and actions.
