24 Aug Municipalities 2030: Training Actions on the SDGs
The 2030 Agenda is the new Agenda for Global Development for the next 11 years. 17 goals, rooted in 169 targets, are the steps identified to guarantee a fairer, more dignified, inclusive and sustainable world.
From the eradication of poverty and hunger to gender equality and health, from access to potable water and sanitation to decent work and economic growth, from the reduction of inequalities to quality education, from renewable energies to climate action, this Agenda reflects a balance between 5 Principles: People, Planet, Peace, Partnerships and Prosperity, which appear as cornerstones for this glocal strategy.
The most recent international projections foresee that by 2030 60% of the world population will be living in urban areas. This reality will demand a transforming change, capable of giving response to the socioeconomic, cultural and environmental challenges that we face today. Demographic trends, employability, decent accommodation, transport accessibility, innovation and culture are all areas covered by Local Authorities (LA), with the potential of having a direct impact in millions of lives.
Recognising Local Authorities as indispensable actors in the process of sustainable development, with strong responsibilities in the promotion of the well-being of their communities and future generations, Valle Flôr Consulting, promotes training actions on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These training initiatives are developed with multidisciplinary groups of different Portuguese municipalities, through participatory, dynamic and creative methodologies, adapted to each work-group.
Our commitment to the construction of a sustainable future, allied with our training methods, allow us to work the intervention axis get to know-reflect-act, indispensable to the processes of local decision-making, policy formulation and definition of strategies oriented towards the 2030 Agenda.
