This Event: SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals

For this special event in-between a unique SDGeneration hackathon  and conference  we think it is only apt to focus on SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

SDG 17 calls on us to “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development”.

In this event we ask, how we can create a collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystem in the UK and beyond to maximise our impact, deliver on the UN SDGs and ensure our long-term ability to flourish?

Why the SDGs need entrepreneurs

A better world depends upon our ability to generate new ideas and build new systems that can better channel human, social and financial efforts towards the SDGs. Entrepreneurs are essential to this. They are key to creating the innovations and partnerships that will enable us to go beyond and reach the SDGs with the resources we have. In order to do this, entrepreneurs need ecosystems that allow knowledge, resources and information to be shared among the different groups that are addressing the goals. Fast Forward 2030, one of the Institute for Global Prosperity’s Knowledge Networks, builds the structure we need to progress.
