The cross-sector community engagement event, held on June 19, 2023, brought together various stakeholders to discuss the importance of integrating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into local community action. The event focused on three key themes: the significance of collaboration to address major social challenges, the value of the SDG framework for grant-making and philanthropy, and the urgent need for collective impact in response to the crisis of our time.
The event emphasized the pressing need for collaboration among diverse stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, businesses, academia, and community members. Participants recognized that addressing the complex social challenges outlined by the SDGs requires collective effort and a shared vision. Collaboration facilitates resource sharing, knowledge sharing, and the creation of innovative solutions to tackle complex and pressing social challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate change, and wellbeing.
