Contribute to Sustainable Development Objectives

Contribute to Sustainable Development Objectives

Published on Nov 03, 2017

SMEs, SSE structures, communities… how to contribute to the UN’s sustainable development objectives (SDOs)?

The UN Sustainable Development Goals…
In 2015, 193 countries adopted a new set of goals under the aegis of the United Nations to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all human beings live in peace and prosperity. They follow on from the Millennium Development Goals that ended in 2015. This new program thus covers the period 2015-2030. To achieve these goals, which concern both the global and local levels, all stakeholders are concerned.

We will focus on 3 of the UN goals: decent work and sustainable economic growth (SDO 8), responsible consumption and production (SDO 12), aquatic life (SDO 14).

Stakeholders confirmed to date (the list is subject to change):

  • Brice Lalonde, Special Advisor to the Global Compact France

And in the evening…
The conference will continue with a cocktail and the evening will close at the Royal Cinema of Biarritz with the screening of the film “Sacrée Croissance!” by Marie-Monique Robin, starting at 8:30 pm.

RHSF is participating through the SUSY project, a consortium of 26 partners in 23 countries, which since 2015 promotes all social and solidarity economy projects that have an impact on poverty and human rights abuses.
