You don’t need the capital of Bill Gates or the influence of Jane Goodall to change the world.

No, everyone can join in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): 17 world goals to turn today’s greatest challenges into opportunities for everyone. Whether you are familiar with the SDGs or it’s quite new material for you, everyone who wants to follow through with his or her SDG-ambitions, is welcome on the SDG Action Day on September 25th at the KIT / SDG-house in Amsterdam.

What’s the plan?

Be inspired by leaders who show you alternative ways, and choose two in-depth workshops suiting your interests. Get started with a group of passionate people from the business community, from municipalities, social organizations and knowledge institutions. From gender equality to Global Goals municipalities and from block chain to soil quality, there is something in it for everyone. Check out the full programme!

What do I get in return?

Think of new business opportunities for your company or organization, unexpected encounters, practical tools that you can use tomorrow, and a better understanding of where we stand and what you can do to achieve the SDGs together. The SDG Action Day is not a single event, but a stopover on the road to 2030: the year in which the SDGs must be achieved.

Impact Hub’s session: Designing your initiative for success

During this session you learn – as an entrepreneur or intrapreneur – how to take your SDG related initiative forward. Committed to the SDGs and systemic change, the Impact Hub team and entrepreneurs will share several mental models and tools as well as provide space to innovate your initiative and build engagement strategies. No previous experience necessary. Bring your own project or initiative if you have one!

The SDG Action Day is an initiative by SDG Charter, SDG House (KIT Royal Tropical Institute), the City of Amsterdam and NCDO.
