On February 3rd, 2021, several SDG houses such as The Humanity Hub, Museon and VNG, the Carnegie Foundation/Peace Palace as well as representatives of the Municipality The Hague amongst other organizations, discussed what needs to be done to achieve the SDGs and how we can help and learn from each other.
The Hague proud to be a Global Goals City, a city where on a daily basis people are working on achieving the SDGs. The Hague is therefore home to a diverse group of SDG houses. 2020 started with a strong message as the decade of action: ambitious action is needed now to be able to deliver the goals in 2030. The COVID-19 crisis quickly presented an enormous challenge in achieving this. With only nine years to go, what are the next steps?
