Workshop: Do you do what you say?


Entrepreneurs, administrators, researchers and NGO’s of all generations have been busy over the past five years with the 17 goals and 169 sub goals. Efforts were mainly focused on incorporating the mission, strategy, goals and reports of the organization in which they work. Research has shown that the formulation has been successful on many points, but that the implementation still has to start for the most part. Because five years have already passed and continuing to write down tends to SDG-washing, the next ten years will have to focus on implementation. This workshop deals with the complex decision-making on 17 goals with four types of instruments (rules, money, technology and communication) in good governance (partners/stakeholders, transparency, integrity). There is something to learn from some companies.
