Introduction to UN SDGs and Writing for Impact
We start off the forum with an introduction broad framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Impact Centered Design.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030. The 2020 Global Leadership Forum has identified three SDGs most impacted by climate change for detailed focus for the 5 day conference. SDG Goal 2: Zero Hunger, SDG Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation and SDG Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.
Impact Centered Design is a framework that integrates the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a foundation for impact-driven solutions design. This session includes a short session about writing for impact.
