The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of challenges to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all that the world has set for itself for the year 2030. The 17 goals, which include zero hunger, reduced inequality, and climate action, can only be achieved if the world comes together and everyone takes action.
Museums - and other cultural partners - have been taking up the challenge and are starting to act. With 17 goals and a total of 169 targets, it may be a tough choice where to start, though. And how can museums contribute to a more sustainable, safe, and equitable world? In this webinar, we will explore the SDGs and learn from museums that are already taking action about how everyone can contribute to the global goals. We will also discover that the SDGs are an opportunity both for the world and for museums that wish to have a real impact in their communities and on the society they are part of.
After the webinar, participants will know where to start with the SDGs in their organizations, and they will know where to find the resources and inspiration to take action successfully.
