START-TO-SDG WORKSHOP FOR THE
BELGIAN-LUXEMBOURG CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE ABROAD
3 March 2021 the Belgian Chambers will organise in
collaboration with CIFAL Flanders-UNITAR an online webinar with exercises
on the UN
Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
the end of September 2015, 70 years after the founding of the United
Nations, the 193 member states decided at the UN General Assembly in New
York on a new, ambitious action plan and ethical compass for the world:
17 global 'Sustainable Development Goals' (2016- 2030) for more peace and
justice based on human rights, more social progress, more care for the
environment, more industrial innovation and decent work, more good
governance and more win-win partnerships between governments, companies
and civil society organisations.
The webinar will dive into the meaning behind the Agenda 2030, the
importance of this transition plan for sustainable business conduct and
the business opportunities that could emerge from the SDGs. Through
interactive exercises, you will learn how to implement this agenda in
your organisation and which benefits or pitfalls you could come across on
your journey to a more sustainable future.
