Bristol & the Sustainable Development Goals
After the largest ever United Nations consultation, its member nations agreed the Sustainable Development Goals in September 2015. The 17 SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, bring together economic, social and environmental aims in a single agenda and action plan to address the challenges facing our planet and its people up to 2030, and they took effect from January 2016.
To encourage the adoption and practical use of the SDGs to guide Bristol’s future sustainable development, Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC has joined with a group of similarly-minded stakeholders in the city to form the Bristol SDG Alliance. The Alliance’s objectives are to use the SDGs to:
- drive the policy framework for long-term city-region development and resilience;
- monitor progress and enable the city-region to hold itself to account; and
- clearly connect community and city-level action to national and global challenges.
In 2017, we are planning to hold a joint event in Bristol with UKSSD and an event as part of the Bristol’s second Festival of the Future City in October.
