GlobalPDX Lunch & Learn with Greater Portland Sustainability Education Network (GPSEN)

February 21, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Bring your lunch and join GlobalPDX and GPSEN for a Lunch & Learn at the Mercy Corps Action Center.

When the member nations of the UN signed onto Agenda 2030, in 2015, they established 17 aspirational Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets to achieve by 2030. While overwhelming at first, each of the SDGs, from poverty and hunger to energy and peace, are being addressed to some degree by organizations in our communities. What are you doing at the local level and beyond? How can we align our organizations with broader initiatives, scale up efforts to address important social, economic, and environmental issues, and amplify our stories? This interactive workshop is led by Dr. Kim Smith, co-founder of the Greater Portland Sustainability Education Network, PCC sociology instructor, and liaison to UNESCO. Bring your lunch and join in a presentation, mapping exercise, and discussion to connect the local to the global and explore our collective impact!
