CIFAL Flanders launches free online SDG Guide

#news and trends  •  14/10/2021  •  Inès Aoun

CIFAL Flanders, supported by the Flemish government, launched the first SDG Guide at the SDG Forum in Brussels – the largest multi-stakeholder forum on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With our help, CIFAL Flanders compiled an accessible, Dutch-language FAQ brochure to help organisations get started with the SDGs.

 

The United Nations drew up a plan in 2015 to eliminate major issues such as the climate crisis, hunger, and injustice. This resulted in the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, consisting of the 17 Development Goals (SDGs) that serve as a moral compass towards a better and more sustainable future.

 

With nine years to go until the 2030 deadline, CIFAL Flanders – together with the Flemish government Department of Chancellery and Foreign Affairs, and Verso, and with the help of our content company Pantarein Publishing – now offers the SDG Guide.

Lowering the hurdles for companies

The Guide is an accessible brochure with 85 questions and answers that refer to relevant knowledge sources in the Flemish SDG landscape: websites, articles, reports, etc.

 

Minister-President of the Flemish Government, Jan Jambon: “It is not just the government that has a role to play; companies, NGOs, educational institutions, citizens and the like all have to roll up their sleeves for the sustainable transition. The collaboration between all these partners is of crucial importance for the realisation of the SDGs.”

 

The SDG Guide aims for the biggest reach possible and addresses all types of organisations (large and small, profit and non-profit). Only by all working together will we be able to achieve the SDGs locally and globally. Consult the SDG Guide here and learn all there is to know about the SDGs in Flanders in 85 questions!
