The National Observatory for Living with Dignity, within the President's Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society, is holding a public workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), encouraging dialogue on the SDGs on a national level. The event will be held on Friday 22 April between 13:30 and 17:30, at the President’s Palace in Valletta.
On 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight injustice and inequality, and combat climate change by 2030. The SDGs are intended to structure the policies and agendas of the United Nations’ member states for the next 15 years.
The event will take the form of various experts giving a Pecha Kucha (20 X 20) presentation on a goal which falls under their area of expertise, and includes time for comments and reflections from participants. Pecha Kucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where 20 images are shown, each for 20 seconds. This Pecha Kucha SDG workshop aims to offer a space for dialogue among all active stakeholders in the implementation of the SDGs, in particular policy and decision makers, and civil society organisations.
You are invited to attend and participate in this event. It will be an excellent opportunity to start reflecting on SDGs as they are linked to the wellbeing of our society, identifying both potential obstacles to the expected progress towards the goals, as well as possible solutions.
A poster for the event is attached, and you are also welcome and encouraged to forward this invitation to anyone who may find the event of interest. Given that spaces are limited, you are kindly requested to send an email by no later than Tuesday 19 April, in order to reserve your place.
