NAEE2016: The Green Campus Edition

The world is changing, are you?

On September 25th, 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. They are 17 bold but achievable goals.  They are all connected.

For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.

During this session, we will be discussing how we can combat the impact of climate change while achieving the sustainable development goals.
