The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 goals that were established in 2015 by the United Nations. The SDGs are an urgent call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The goals cover a broad range of interconnected social, economic, and environmental issues.
The SDGs are a universal call to action, and everyone has a role to play in achieving them. The need for collaboration and global action is captured in Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.
Goal 17 calls on people from all countries and professions to recognise the urgency with which our world, climate, and life need to be protected for future generations.
Business events are the perfect forum to bring people together to help meet the SDGs. Business events bring global communities together to discuss significant global topics like poverty, human health, or climate change.
We want to help make the connection between business events and the SDGs clearer. We want to help business events realise their potential to contribute positively towards the SDGs. We want to help business events become outcome focused and help develop events that create change in the world, delivering value, education and community to delegates and members.
At VisitScotland Business Events, we are aligning our work and our campaigns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
