The Conference on the “17 Sustainable Development Goals” is organized by the University of Piraeus on the occasion of the celebration of the United Nations Day to raise awareness of the academic community and the youth about the new World Agenda 2030. Both the academic community and youth have played a significant role in the shaping of this global agreement. Therefore, they are called for active participation during the implementation stage by assisting and activating state actors given that this is a process mostly driven by states.
The goal is all the relevant stakeholders to take ownership of the 2017 Goals and to realize that these are addressed to all citizens of the world, regardless of their status.
The fact that public and private bodies as well as the local community are represented in the conference, reflects the complexity of the endeavor, the existence of interconnections and the fact that cooperation, partnerships and policy coherence are necessary to achieve the common accomplishment: poverty alleviation and the well-being of people and the planet.
