The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set ambitious targets to create transformative social, economic and environmental progress by 2030 – the closest thing we have to a global sustainability strategy. But national governments cannot deliver the SDGs alone: local government, businesses, the public sector, community groups and others must all play their part.
This event launches the London Sustainable Development Commission’s report analysing performance on the SDGs in London. The report focuses on inequalities in the city, including how Covid-19 impacted some communities far more heavily than others – particularly relevant as this event is timed to coincide with International Women’s Day.
The event will explore how decision makers in all sectors might contribute to London’s green and fair recovery by embedding the principles of the SDGs: reducing inequalities; holistic thinking; community participation in local decision-making; and partnership working.
