The foundation will hold events themed on our discussion papers as well as in areas of interest to Helen Clark in her international advocacy work. These will include seminars, guest speakers and discussion panels. Our events are aimed to anyone interested in the issues covered – students, policymakers, NGOs and businesses should all feel welcome. We are interested to hear from partners who may wish to cohost or otherwise participate in these events.
Getting to Carbon Zero – How can the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Help?
In 2015, United Nations (UN) Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals — a universal call to action to eradicate poverty, promote global prosperity, foster peace, and protect the environment by 2030. Is it all just talk? What help are the goals for fostering real policy change? We will discuss this with our three experts in a panel discussion, featuring Rt Hon Helen Clark, Dr. David Hall, and Dr. Jo Spratt, on 8 May, 10-11am at AUT.
