Philanthropy New York is pleased to extend an invitation to our membership for a program hosted by Council on Foundations and SDG Philanthropy Platform to discuss how local work in New York City supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As American philanthropy grapples with local challenges, how do our solutions and experiences link to challenges elsewhere around the globe? How can these new global goals encourage and enhance domestic programs in the United States? Why do these goals matter in New York and how can funders leverage the SDGs to create new partnerships?
Morning discussions will provide attendees with a strong overview of the Sustainable Development Goals (including what they are and how they were formed), how New York initiatives like #OneNYC and local needs assessments support the goals, and how the SDGs will be implemented and measured in the U.S.
The afternoon will include table-top conversations around specific areas of ongoing focus in New York and how these relate to specific SDG targets - including poverty and inequality, workforce development and economic security, gender, justice reform, and health.
Throughout the event, funders will work together to determine whether the SDGs provide new opportunities for partnership and collaboration to improve lives in New York.
All interested funders.
