The Galician Fund for Cooperation and Solidarity organizes a day to promote the Sustainable Development Goals ( SDG ) in the local administration. The seminar, which will take place on May 31 at the City of Culture, will feature leading experts and showcase pioneering initiatives in Germany and the Netherlands.
Inspiring the municipalities to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs established by the UN is the purpose of the day "A localization of two SDGs and municipal public policies for development cooperation".
Issues such as gender, health, education, environment, peace, and indicators of the SDGs connected with local competences will be addressed. In this way, the municipal governments can take measures for their internal compliance, aligning their policies with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and can also contribute to their achievement in the most disadvantaged places through international cooperation and participation in networks. like the Galician Fund.
In addition, there will be a space for the exchange of experiences, to promote dialogue and learning among local administrations, materialized in individual workshops with two different themes. The first will deal with the management of awareness raising activities and the second with the municipal public calls for development cooperation projects.
