Workshop One: The Goal of the Global Goals - alignment, objective setting and measurement for sustainable impact

Here we will be joined by Divya Dimple from Philips's founder Caterina Occhio (fair-trade jewellery) who will open our workshop and share some experience of theirjourneys. We will then discuss the recent conclusions of the UN NGO/DPI Summit in Korea and the recently concluded University of Amsterdam conference which was attended by academics from around the world and was addressed by the Amsterdam Deputy Mayor on Sustainability and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Half of this session will be interactive lectures in which everyone will be brought to the same level and introduced to the Global Goals (no prior knowledge required); and the second half is workshop exercises which will allow each member to identify a community and working group to address the issues they feel most passionately about. We hope to attract 25-40 people at the workshop.
