Defining a Vectoring Approach to Sustainable Development

An outside source of drive and inspiration for many organizations and individuals can be found in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): a unique initiative in voluntary global responsibility with clear targets and deadlines.

Applying the SDG Proposition Canvas in a workshop format is aimed at addressing exactly that need.

A Little Less Conversation, a Little More SDG Action

The largest call-to-action for sustainability ever was announced three years ago to the day, on September 25, 2015, when the leaders of 193 nations adopted an ambitious set of global goals to combat poverty, inequality and climate change at the United Nations General Assembly. That day, the United Nations called for governments, businesses, NGOs and citizens around the world to join forces in achieving the 17 SDGs and its associated targets by 2030.

As today is SDG Action Day, we share our free SDG Proposition Canvas and workshop instructions to turn your ideas into focused actions.
