SDG Taskforce Virtual Roundtable Series

Event description

The SDG Taskforce hosts a regular Virtual Roundtable Series, where discussions led by each working group (WGs) will explore insights from current research and future trajectories.

The series explores the questions of where and how incremental change is taking place, and under what conditions these developments generate and accelerate the ongoing sustainability transformation up to 2030 and beyond. In particular, we look into promises and pitfalls of SDG implementation and identify enabling and constraining factors for accelerating current ambition levels to implement the global goals.

Over the course of the next 12 months, WG co-leads will each host a roundtable discussion and invite speakers from within and outside the WG to provide short interventions based on their field of expertise on the overall topic of promises and pitfalls of accelerating SDG implementation. After the short interventions, all participants of the virtual roundtable are invited to ask questions, comment on the short interventions, and share their own experiences and views regarding the challenges of SDG implementation.

So far, two sessions have taken place. You can view them below. Upcoming webinars will be announced. To keep up to date, follow @ESG_SDG and @ESG_Project on Twitter.
