"Implementation of the 2030 Agenda and SDGs at the Local and Urban Level: Practical Experiences and Governance Needs"
The 15th ESDN Workshop, “Implementation of the 2030 Agenda and SDGs at the Local and Urban Level: Practical Experiences and Governance Needs”, was held in Berlin, Germany on 16-17 October 2017. The workshop was organized in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.
The main goal of this Workshop was to learn about and share the experiences of the local and urban level in implementing the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs in Europe. Against this background, the Workshop focused on the following questions and topics: How does the local and urban level utilize past experiences in SD in the implementation of the SDGs?; How to move from previous SD activities and systems to activities and systems that integrate the SDGs at the local and urban level?; reflecting on impulses and support from existing local and urban networks in the implementation of the SDGs; showcasing practical examples of SDG implementation at the local and urban level; and developing recommendations for the effective implementation of the SDGs at the local and urban level.
