New Zealand Sustainable Development Goals Summit

Monday, April 23, 2018 - 06:00 to 15:00
Rutherford House, Pipitea Campus, Victoria University of Wellington, 23 Lambton Quay (Pipitea Campus)
New Zealand

The Summit is a cross-sectoral collaboration working to accomplish the SDGs by 2030, also known as Agenda 2030.

In 2015, the 17 SDGs were signed off by all governments in the United Nations. Governments alone can’t deliver on the SDGs. The SDGs are an exciting opportunity for business, government, civil society and the tertiary sector to align their purpose and provide leadership on the delivery of Agenda 2030. It is critical that we transform our world and develop sustainable well-being. This Summit aims to start a cross-sectoral conversation to bring the SDGs home to New Zealand.

This Summit has two aims. First, to inform and excite leadership across sectors by displaying international and national examples of government, business, civil society and academia using and measuring progress on the SDGs. Second, we must act quickly and develop cross-sectoral partnerships and collaborations for concrete actions to deliver on the 17 goals.  This New Zealand Summit embodies Goal 17 - Partnerships for the Goals.
