Global Minnesota hosts the Minnesota SDG Roundtable every quarter, highlighting great work underway in our state and region that is advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their targets for achieving success by the year 2030. This virtual session focused on “Localization of the SDGs” and featured a roundtable discussion by participants in a workshop led by the Brookings Institute and UN Foundation designed to review and stimulate more robust use of the SDGs here in our community.

The 17 SDGs are a United Nations plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. These goals recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth, address social needs such as education, health, and equality, and tackle climate challenges by working to preserve oceans and forests.
