Workshop SDG 12 Implemenation.jpg

Our Workshop on "SDG 12 Implementation. Issues and Best-practices in different countries and sectors" will be on 4th March, 9am (Sao Paulo GMT).


Dr. Rike Kramer-Hoppe has well summarized this get-together: 'While trying to implement the SDG 12 we can see that national parliaments, private actors or international organisations have put an effort into implementing these goals, however, we are far from reaching a world in which consumption is always sustainable. The question arises  whether this is even possible. This project will analyse whether on different levels, with different actors and audiences we face similar  issues. What is lacking, what are the hurdles. Is there not sufficient law, is there not sufficient capacity or cooperation or do we need more individual behavioural change and nudging people in the right direction?'
