In the lead up to the 2022 Global Goals Week, the SDG Lab is organizing the Annual Meeting of the Geneva SDG Community, on September 15, 14:00-17:00 CET, at UN Geneva.
Held in person for the first time since the onset of COVID-19, the meeting represents a unique opportunity to hear from thought leaders on the power of networks to mobilize SDG action.
“In our fast-paced everyday lives, where we are all occupied with our respective bits and pieces of the sustainable development puzzle, the Geneva SDG Community provides members with an informal and easy way to stay connected with colleagues and our common goals,” said Trine Schmidt, Policy Adviser at IISD/SDG Lab.
“I believe the connection, mutual support, and inspiration that members of the Geneva SDG Community can offer one another is key to staying motivated and energized, enhancing our joint efforts to achieve the SDGs.”
The purpose of the Geneva SDG Community is to make the unique potential of Geneva’s ecosystem accessible and effectual. This is translated into practice through a transformative ecosystem approach aimed at: (a) convening, connecting, and aligning our diverse community; (b) mobilizing knowledge and knowledge brokering; and (c) fostering innovation for policy and practice.
