In March, we’ll be focusing on SDG 16: Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions

Peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law, are essential for achieving sustainable development. That’s why SDG 16 promotes peaceful and inclusive societies, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

TYKN is a startup that is protecting access to human rights through digital identities by helping organisations validate the existence of millions of people. Tykn‘s digital identity platform allows public and private institutions to issue and verify digital identity credentials. It’s an innovative way to share and request personal data proofs. Users are provided with an app, a digital identity wallet, that works on every mobile device and allows them to digitally access services from those institutions in a private and secure manner. Founder Tey El-Rjula will share the inspiring journey of Tykn and how it contributes to SDG 16.

WO = MEN: As March is the month of International Women’s Day, WO = MEN (women equals men), will create a mobile pop-up experience that allows everyone to dive into the head of a woman or a man. WO=MEN, the Dutch Gender Platform, is an association that puts the unequal power relationships and dynamic between women and men worldwide on the map with an ever-growing unique mix of organizations and individuals. Gender inequality is both a violation of human rights and an obstacle to sustainable development.

What is the SDG Meetup?

Sustainable Development Goals Meetup is a monthly meetup powered by SDG House Residents Impact Hub Amsterdam and C-Change.

The SDG Meetup series provides a continuous engagement opportunity to accelerate solutions per SDG and develop shared knowledge and resources. It is also an accessible collaboration platform for established organisations, impact entrepreneurs, SMEs, institutions and independent professionals who want to learn about and work on the SDGs in an entrepreneurial way.

Each edition focuses on one SDG (i.e. gender equality, climate change). It is an interactive evening event meant to generate new ideas, connections, collaboration and action. At each edition we invite knowledge partners, entrepreneurs, innovators and expert facilitators to co-create an inspiring environment for us.

The learnings and insights of each meetup are shared with the public through a blog series.

You can also join the SDG Meetup group on Meetup’s platform!
