Thinking and Acting Locally and Globally on Common Social, Economic, and Environmental Goals


Join the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA) and experts in the sustainable development field for an engaging afternoon discussion of the newly adopted 2030 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

On September 25, 2015, the Global Goals for Sustainable Development were unanimously adopted by the United Nations at the 70th session of the General Assembly. Officially succeeding the 2000-2015 Millennium Development Goals, the post-2015 agenda has committed to 17 sustainable development goals to fight against poverty, inequality, and climate change. This program, hosted by UNA-NCA, will focus on the linkages and cross-overs between our local community needs in the US and international needs to address poverty in countries around the world. A panel of outstanding experts on policy and program implementation with experience in US communities and global settings will be looking how the Global Goals for Sustainable Development address issues of poverty, human rights, violence, and climate needs, among other key issues, at the local and global level.

The program is organized by the UNA-NCA Sustainable Development Goals Task Force co-chaired by Stephen Moseley and A. Edward Elmendorf. Come and learn more about the 2030 Global Goals and discuss how the international community, and each of our local communities, can succeed in implementing this ambitious agenda, and how you can engage in this endeavor.

ASIL is a cooperating organization for this event.
