Why This Challenge?

The SDGs are a global movement to tackle our many wicked problems. Wicked problems are intertwined with other problems and have many stakeholders, all with different ideas about what causes them and what the solutions could be.

The UN Sustainable Goals (SDGs) recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

We believe together, as a region, we can open up a catalogue of many possible paths to help our neighbourhoods and communities contribute locally to the SDGs . If we provide you with the knowledge and resources to answer our challenge, would you join us contributing to the UN Sustainable Developments?
