SDGs in Action initiative

The motivation

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been intended as a general framework for governments, businesses, the community, and organisations of all kinds to help guide them to prioritise and accelerate action to address key global and local challenges.

While many organisations are starting to align/map their work to the SDGs, only a few have started experimenting and innovating with ways to use the SDGs framework as a tool for better, more ambitious and more forward-looking thinking and planning.

Our aim

To help accelerate uptake of the SDGs framework as a planning tool, this seminar series will showcase innovative cross-sector initiatives that use the SDGs framework to drive action beyond business as usual, as inspiration and a basis for mutual learning among organisations interested in engaging with the SDGs.

The seminars will explore the experiences of these initiatives with using the SDGs, including why they chose to use them, how they integrated them into planning processes, the benefits they received from doing so, barriers they encountered, and how they overcame them. They also aim to help connect the local community of practitioners interested in the SDGs.

The seminars will be hosted by SDSN AusNZPac in partnership with SDSN members and other organisations, and will focus on initiatives involving SDSN members.
