Dear students, colleagues, and faculty welcome to the forum dedicated to Goal 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Conference!
Goal 17 is aimed at creating global partnerships to support and eventually achieve the ambitious targets set forth by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Goal 17 is paramount to the success to the 2030 Agenda. By strengthening the means of implementation, i.e. by having a set forth plan as to how to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda, Goal 17 in effect links together all of the SDGs.
This goal is potentially the most important of all the 17 goals because, without implementation, goals are simply rhetoric. In this forum, we shall discuss tangible solutions to the attainment of the objectives set forth by the UN Agenda for Sustainable Development. We look forward to seeing you and encourage your participation in our forum!
Alexander John LeePresident of the committee "Partnerships for the Goals"
I am delighted to welcome you to the SDG Forum as an expert of our committee.
The Sustainable Development Goals can be realized with a strong commitment to global partnership. It is essential for each country to reach agreements to change the world for the better.
We expect you to consider the problems from various perspectives and to express your ideas freely. Besides the opportunity to represent a certain country during the discussion you will be able to practice your English skills.
Hope you will gain unique experience participating in our Forum.
