UN: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development celebrates six years

To celebrate the 6th anniversary since the launch of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Observatory for Science, Communication and Culture Policies (POLObs), under the project “Culture and Development: Cultural Projects and the 2030 Agenda”, promotes the Seminar “6 cultural ideas for the 2030 Agenda in the Decade of Action”. The event will take place on September 25, at 15h00, via Zoom.

The session will be coordinated by researcher Manuel Gama and will have the contributions of representatives of Brazilian cultural and research organizations. It will address ideas and proposals to foster culture’s contributions to the 2030 Agenda in the Decade of Action. It was declared in 2019 by the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, intended to challenge UN member states to implement the SDGs by 2030.

The 2030 Agenda, adopted by the UN on September 25, 2015, has 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets. It is an action plan with a new global model to end poverty, promote prosperity and people’s well-being and combat climate change on the planet.
