Discussion on Sustainable Development Goal 17:
Partnerships for the Goals
In March 2018, over 300 stakeholders from 39 countries joined GlobeScan and Unilever for the SDG Leadership Forum for Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals. The event was a global, online, text-based discussion, held over two sessions during the day, with seventeen guest panelists invited to contribute to the dialogue.
Sustainable Development Goal #17 aims to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise global partnership for sustainable development.
Our discussions focused on the impact partnerships can have in the provision of new models of financing the Goals and in empowering small-scale social entrepreneurs to scale up innovations to help achieve the SDGs.
We’ve analyzed more than 1,150 comments and examples of partnerships and have summarised the findings in this Report which is available to download.
As Paul Polman says in his Introduction to the report, “Platforms like this SDG Leadership Forum give us an opportunity to learn from each other, inspire fresh thinking and share best practice examples to turn ideas into actions. Collaborations like this are so critical in enabling us to achieve the Goals.”
