Debate: Partnerships for sustainable development

Press release, 05.11.2015

First in a series of events entitled "Dialogue 2030: Switzerland and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" on the role of partnerships.

Debate: Partnerships for sustainable development

The United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015. The new agenda contains 17 specific goals that apply to all countries, encompassing social and economic development but also environmental sustainability. Now the time has come to implement the agenda – in Switzerland too! It can only succeed if all the important partners, authorities, civil society, and the business and science communities are mobilised into concerted action.

What is there to learn from successful partnerships at the national and international levels? What potential do they offer? What are the roles of the various actors involved?

Come to the debate.
