SDG Innovation Talks @UNEA4: Programme starting Monday 11th at UNEP in Nairobi

SDG Innovation Talks @UNEA4: Programme
If you are attending UNEA4 then this next week has some very interesting SDG Talks
Organized by UN Environment’s Policy and Programme Division, the planned event serves two purposes. First, it aims to provide a platform for colleagues to promote their good work. Second, it seeks to inform and inspire participants of the UN Environment Assembly about the Sustainable Development Goals.
Of course, I would love anyone at UNEA4 to come to the talk Llorenc Mila I Canals, and I are giving on Tuesday at 3pm Sustainable development: Life cycle and historical perspectives
