Webinar // Community Leadership and the Sustainable Development Goals

Webinar // Community Leadership and the Sustainable Development Goals

Volume 13, issue 4 of The Foundation Review focuses on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how they can be used as tools for community leadership. The SDGs, based on five pillars for sustainable development (economic, social, environmental, cultural, security), acknowledge that sustainable development needs to happen everywhere and that inequality exists within all communities. As such, the SDGs are meant to be implemented in all nations, with a focus on community-level actions and indicators that are meant to ensure that no one is left behind.

This webinar featured several authors from this themed issue of The Foundation Review discussing how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can serve as a robust blueprint for anyone in philanthropy concerned about the many global challenges we all face.
