Event description

Description

Take part in a workshop that explores the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how they are relevant at a local level in our communities.

In April this year the Government launched its National Implementation Plan for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS). This plan sets out how it intends Ireland to deliver on the goals by 2030 and makes reference to the role of local government, local government committees, Local Economic and Community Plans and Public Participation Networks in raising awareness of and achieving the goals at local level. (See page 22, https://www.dccae.gov.ie/documents/DCCAE-National-Implementation-Plan.pdf.)

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Public Participation Network would like to invite you to take part in this introductory workshop on the Sustainable Development Goals and how they are relevant at a local level. During the workshop you will:

  • Become familiar with the SDGs and map them to local issues

  • Look at how to align your organisation or group’s plans and strategies to the SDGs

  • Explore how the SDGs connect to goals and targets in the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Local Economic and Community Plan.

  • Find out more about upcoming funding opportunities relating to the SDGs and future local policy developments relating to the SDGs.

  • Receive free resources on the SDGs

The workshop will be facilitated by Davie Phillip of Cultivate and Caitriona Rogerson, SDG Project Co-ordinator for the Irish Environmental Network.

This workshop is open to everyone - DLR PPN members, the general public, local Councillors and Council staff - all are welcome.

If you have any questions please contact DLR PPN manager Laura Howe on 087 6394506 or laura@dlrppn.ie
