Commemorating Earth Day Week, join us for an informative presentation by Caroline Fox '07 and an open discussion of 'Agenda 2030,' the United Nations integrated framework of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for 2030, that address hunger, poverty, education, climate and more. Thus far, 193 countries have signed onto this blueprint for a better world.
As Head of Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) USA, a network of US universities and research institutions working to advance sustainable development, Caroline will discuss these goals in the context of the United States and the experience of building a network of research institutions to advance research, education and policy to achieve this ambitious agenda.
Caroline notes that her lecture and Q+A discussion are particularly targeted to people who are 'interested in systems-thinking and systems change, sustainability, the UN, global agendas and local action' - practically all of us. Hope to see you there!
