We Are in This Together!
UNOPS Global Innovation Sweden and Lund University present: Roundtable on why and how to create SDG innovation in partnership.
In order to reach the Global Goals we will have to innovate. And in order to truly innovate around the Global Goals we need to find new partners and new constellations from different perspectives and different areas.
And without significant progress on SDG 17, achieving the rest of the first 16 goals will be a near-impossible task. If steps aren’t made to coordinate, collaborate, and convene within and between countries to work together towards the SDGs, the likelihood of achieving them becomes slimmer year after year.
Goal 17 is often forgotten, but UNOPS Global Innovation Centre view it as one of the most important.
Subgoal 17.16 is focused on developing multi-stakeholder partners that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries. While subgoal 17.17 encourages and promotes effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships.
How are stakeholders in Lund working together to help build on these topics and how can we innovate more through partnerships?
Come join, talk and innovate with us. We only have one planet. We are all in this together.
In this 1-hour digital session you will hear from experts in Lund university, students, the private sector and UNOPS Global Innovation Centre Sweden on how they are working towards a sustainable future and how partnerships play a key role in their activities.
