Localising Agenda 2030: how regions can help meet the SDGs
24 June 2020 14:30 - 16:00
|Join us for our online debate on “Localising Agenda 2030: how regions can help meet the SDGs”, on Wednesday 24 June from 14:30 to 16:00 CEST.
Regions and cities have been the first responders to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, coping with the immediate impact on their health systems, and enforcing lockdowns while sustaining families and local businesses. In its economic recovery plan, the European Commission has recognized the instrumental role of regions for a sustainable recovery. Now more than ever, local and national authorities should join forces towards achieving a more resilient global society. With 2030 a decade away, regions should take a lead on implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), focusing on ensuring healthy lives and wellbeing, inclusive and sustainable economic growth and equality within and among countries.
Key questions include:
Aziza Akhmouch, Head of the OECD Division for Cities, Urban Policies and Sustainable Development
Magnus Bertnsson, President of the Assembly of European Regions (AER)
Raffaele Cattaneo, Minister for Environment and Climate of Lombardy (IT); member of the Regions 4 Steering Committee
Damià Calvet, Minister of Territory and sustainability of the Government of Catalonia, representative of UCLG-Global Taskforce
Wallis Goelen, Senior Expert, European Commission Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy
Moderation by Dharmendra Kanani, Director of Insights, Friends of Europe
