SDGs In-Focus


Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 will only be possible if we collectively share our knowledge and seek out opportunities for collaboration. In our new video series – SDGs In-Focus – we seek to inspire action and cooperation by sharing insights from individuals working to advance the Global Goals across a range of organisations in sustainable development.

Launched at SDG Action Day 2019, our kick-off episodes feature speakers from across the SDG spectrum – from national SDG coordinator Sandra Pellgrom and SDG moonshot winner Lisa van der Geer to Nienke Meijer (Chairman of the Board of Fontys Hogescholen), Aynouk Tan and Maarten Labots from the Young Climate Movement.

Are you curious about their views on the SDGs? Check out the second episode of SDGs In-Focus featuring Nienke Meijer from the Fontys University of Applied Sciences.
