Next Workshop: Sustainable Development Goals – What can Protected Areas do?

Published on:
On the 28th of October, EUROPARC will organise a workshop within the SDGimp project. In 90 minutes we will look at the results of the project and how Protected Areas can support the Sustainable Development Goals.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. The Erasmus+ Project “SDGimpDecision support system for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in Protected Areas” has looked closely at how Protected Areas can implement and support these Goals.

This participatory workshop will present the results of the Erasmus project and allows you to discover what your Protected Area can do to make these goals a reality.

SDGimp has created a quality learning system and decision support materials for Protected Area administrations, regional stakeholders and entrepreneurs that will support decision making capacities and will promote the implementation of SDGs.

The workshop will take us on a short 90 minute journey as we explore the learning material and consider together how Protected Areas can be drivers of SDG implementation for a better and more sustainable future. Registration is now open!
