The Future We Want – Conference 2016
AS PART OF FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2016 WE ARE INVITING COMMUNITY GROUPS AND INTERESTED INDIVIDUALS ….
… to join us for a stimulating afternoon of learning about the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), sharing ideas for Thanet and the way forward to help start to make them a reality.
The Sustainable Development Goals, also know as the Global Goals, are a new set of targets that aim to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, protect the environment and tackle climate change. They follow on from the UN Millennium Development Goals that expired at the end of 2015.
Fairtrade can play a part in achieving many of these goals at both a global level and more immediately for Thanet at a local level. What about you and your group? Are there ways in which we could work together? Come and network and meet other Thanet community groups.
These new Goals are for everybody to work towards, not just developing countries. Harnessing ideas at a local level will be the catalyst for change in our community and help create The future we want …
SUSTAINABILITY MEANS WE CAN MEET PEOPLE’S NEEDS TODAY WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE
Saturday 5th March 2016, 2.00pm – 5.00pm
