Geneva SDG Community Annual Meeting 2022
“In our fast-paced everyday lives, where we are all occupied with our respective bits and pieces of the sustainable development puzzle, the Geneva SDG Community provides members with an informal and easy way to stay connected with colleagues and our common goals,” said Trine Schmidt, Policy Adviser at IISD and the SDG Lab. “I believe the connection, mutual support, and inspiration that members of the Geneva SDG community can offer one another is key to staying motivated and energized, enhancing our joint efforts to achieve the SDGs.”
This interactive meeting will kick off with inspirational keynotes on mobilizing communities and networks for the SDGs followed by a lightning round of presentations by members from the community. Join us to hear from:
- Marina Ponti, Director of the SDG Action Campaign (TBC)
- Nadim Choucair, Founder of the 2030 Cabinet and Co-founder of the Global Goals Directory

- Francesca Bosco, CyberPeace Institute
- Monique Beerli, Global Governance Centre at Geneva Graduate Institute
