Call for case studies: Join us to showcase how you are using the SDGs as a tool for action!

4 June, 2020  |  Australia  ,  New Zealand  ,  Pacific  ,  SDG Localisation   


We are excited to invite SDSN AusNZPac members to be part of our new initiative, SDGs in Action.

The initiative aims to showcase the exciting and innovative projects our members are involved in that use the SDGs framework as a tool to help governments, businesses, communities, universities and others take more ambitious “beyond-business-as-usual” action on sustainable development.

With many organisations unsure how to move beyond just aligning/mapping what they do to the SDGs, we want to showcase these projects to help inspire and mobilise others.


Briefly, the plan for the initiative is:

  1. Members are invited to submit short case studies on their SDG projects through this form; https://forms.gle/sapVcny8ib81x5xP8. The deadline for submission is 26 June.
  2. We will compile the case studies into a “Regional SDG Action Report”
  3. Participants will be invited to present their projects in a webinar, sometime during 2020
  4. The report will be launched as part of SDSN’s Global Solutions Forum (GSF), in September 2020

The projects that can be included will:

  • Focus on developing approaches, resources, or tools that use the SDGs framework to help organisations and communities go beyond business as usual.
  • Demonstrate collaboration
  • Have an “action” component, to implement or test the approach in real-world situations
  • Currently active or completed within the last two years.

Further details are provided in this 1-page initiative overview.

The initiative was originally meant as a seminar series, with the Deakin Local SDGs Program as the first cab off the rank, but we have re-designed it to our new reality.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me (tahl.kestin@monash.edu) if you have any questions at all about the initiative or what kinds of projects we are looking for.

We hope you will join us for this unique and important initiative!
