“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.”
