Online Event! Intro to the SDGs in English

May 1, 2020

What are the SDGs, and how are they related to you and Peace Boat?

These days, we hear a lot about "the Sustainable Development Goals - the SDGs." But what are they actually, how did they come about, and what do they have to do with us? This is something we will discuss during this online study session.

Join this event to consider these questions, and learn more about the SDGs and Peace Boat's activities as a campaigner for the goals. At the end of the study session, we will share some initiatives you can get started on right away!

Recommended for anyone curious to learn about the fundamentals of the SDGs, or in participating in Peace Boat's activities in the future!
