Building Bridges: Cross-sector Partnerships for the Sustainable Development Goals

The UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals were developed in 2015 by the United Nations as a call for action by all countries – large and small, rich and poor to create inclusive prosperity that protects our planet. These Goals can only be achieved by partnership. Partnerships across and between sectors and countries. That means business, all across the world and regardless of size, has a key role to play.

To help companies better understand the Goals and the opportunities they bring for partnership, Business in the Community is partnering with the Irish Development Education Association via Bridge 47 – an EU project that seeks to build global citizenship in pursuit of the SDGs through Global Citizenship Education. This event will explore collaboration to address the Goals.

Be part of this unique All-Ireland networking forum and explore:

  • Why the SDGs matter for business
  • Why business matters for the SDGs
  • How cross-sector partnerships can enhance your business and demonstrate commitment to the SDGs

Full programme will become available here closer to the forum date. For more information, contact: gillian.mckee@bitcni.org.uk or ji.hyun.kim@bridge47.org
