We believe that the SDG framework can be of great value in helping people to make valuable connections by offering transparency on who is working on what. If we know who is working on which SDGs, we can connect, learn from one another and possibly combine forces to achieve more impact.
We worked with our community to see who was already working towards the SDGs. And we found that not only are some working on multiple goals at the same time, but within the Hub member organizations, all 17 SDGs are well represented. From reducing inequality and poverty, defending human rights, climate action to zero-hunger, our community is working towards peace and justice in many more ways than traditionally associated with – for example – SDG 16, which directly concerns justice institutions. Clearly the Hague peace and justice ecosystem includes more diverse approaches and players than some usually associate with this city of international peace and justice.
We are proud to present our first SDG map of our community; it’s a snapshot of who is working on what right now. We plan to update it, and we want to make it interactive so that you can explore it and find out more about our amazing members and what they do. Meanwhile, you can download it by clicking on it, and please, share it around. Maybe it can also inspire you to see connections and opportunities. If you woud like to connect to one of the organizations on the map, you can find them on our community page.
Let us know if it helps to catalyse more collaborations or if we can assist in making it happen!
