The UN SDGs and climate change (Reading Climate Festival)

November 11 @ 3.00 pm - 4.30 pm


The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed by every country on the planet in 2015, provide a vision for ‘the future we want’. A future where people live in peace and prosperity on a healthy planet.

The SDGs define an extraordinary agenda, nothing less than a transformation of society as we know it. To achieve the goals will require contributions from all stakeholders – not just governments. Business, civil society, and ordinary citizens all have contributions to make.

In this session we will look more closely at how the SDGs came into being, what they include, why business and individuals should care about them and how they can make a contribution to tackling climate change.

Reading Climate Festival is a week long programme of free events to inspire action on climate change, curated by Reading Climate Action Network.
