During this year’s international Development Week, BCCIC is pleased to announce the launch of its new SDG Praxis Program. The Praxis program will focus on the transformational potential of the Sustainable Development Goals and the nexus between theory and practice. How do we enact, embody, and practice the SDGs? How can we leverage the SDGs in practical ways to support our work and new ways of seeing, understanding, and realizing positive change? The SDG Praxis Program will document and share practical examples and experiences that address these questions as well as learning opportunities to develop our skills in working with the SDGs for transformational change.
As part of this new Sustainable Development Goals Praxis Program, we are proud to host an international web-panel on “The Sustainable Development Goals and Transformational Change” on February 28th. The web panel will focus on the transformational change that lies at the heart of the 2030 Agenda.
This web-panel brings together thought leaders who are leveraging the transformational potential of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to promote new ways of collaborating within and between organizations, supporting grassroots change, leveraging policy, and promoting movement and network building toward a better world. This unique web-panel will explore:
- The evolving concept of transformational change and how it can be understood in relation to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
- The transformational principles and opportunities that are embedded in the SDGs.
- Practical examples of how to leverage these transformational principles and to practice change in new ways and for better outcomes.
- How the SDGs require us to change ourselves in order to realize their transformative potential – as individuals, organizations, societies, and cultures.
