On the 31st of July 2018, Koreo will host a special Good Women event to talk about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and hear from people who are already tackling them through their work.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
Announced by the UN in 2015, these 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The Goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide an inspiring template and targets for all countries, organisations and businesses to assess, measure and align to in accordance with their own priorities and the social and environmental challenges of the world at large.
Koreo was founded on the beliefs that talent is the fundamental force for social change, that social impact should be part of all work regardless of sector or role, and that collaborative action is the only way to address complex social issues. They also believe that the UN’s Global Goals provide a common language to connect organisations and sectors, and that they are the closest we’ve ever been to a social change global strategy.
The event, hosted at Impact Hub King’s Cross, will include Koreo’s famous Soapbox, a facilitated Sustainable Development Goals game, and bags of time for connection too! Do join us for a wonderful evening of networking and debate with fellow Good Women.
*They are still looking for Soapbox speakers, so get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you are contributing to one of the Global Goals through your work!
