We partnered up with SDSN and supported the design of their launch conference. In particular, we designed flow and are co-facilitating the break-out session. Nora and Osi, together with a facilitator crew of 10 people, will take the participants through a process including storytelling as the main methodology.
If you want to know how we plan to collectively learn from stories and take action towards the SDGs, check out this video.
"We can’t wait to see what will come out of this unique space for dialogue and collaboration that we are opening together with SDSN" - Nora Wilhelm
SDSN Switzerland's official launch conference
Some 250 decision makers will meet in Bern on 15 February in order to drive forward implementation by Switzerland of the global Sustainable Development Goals. They convene under the theme "Where Society, Science and Politics create solutions".
Swiss politics, business, science and society are challenged: The Federal Council shall submit a report by July 2018, indicating where and how Switzerland can deliver its contribution to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are the central plank of the UN’s Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.
Implementation of the SDGs will require concrete and practical solutions that set Switzerland on the road to sustainability. The Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Switzerland has, therefore, convened a conference in Bern on 15 February that will be attended by representatives from the scientific and research communities, think-tanks, politicians and government officials, civil society, industry as well as international organisations. The aim is to establish a broad basis for implementing the SDGs in Switzerland.
