Australian SDGs Summit: On the Road to Implementation

Wednesday, 7 September 2016

8:30am – 4:30pm


Registrations will open at 8.30am for a 9am start


Leaders and decision-makers from government, business, civil society and academia gathered at the inaugural Australian SDGs Summit.

The new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a landmark agreement by all countries – offer a blueprint for a better future for all. The agenda offers significant opportunities to Australia as a nation, and all sectors have a role to play in achieving the SDGs. Further, cross-sector collaboration will be required on an unprecedented scale.

The Summit explored key questions including:

  • What do the SDGs mean for Australia at home and abroad and what opportunities does the agenda offer?
  • How are different sectors already taking steps to implement the SDGs?
  • What actions are required collaboratively and by each sector to achieve the SDG

The GCNA co-organised the Australian SDGs Summit with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Australia/Pacific and SDSN Youth, Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) and Australian Council for International Development (ACFID).
