Transforming consumption: How can we achieve the SDGs in the UK?
By Bioregional and UKSSD
Take a trip to the future at our half-day workshop in London on 20 November
What will consumption be like in 2030? How can we create products and services that enable all people in the UK to live better, healthier and happier lives?
Join UKSSD and Bioregional for an inspiring and dynamic half-day workshop as we take a trip to 2030 and explore the future role of consumers and producers through the lens of Sustainable Development Goal 12, which aims to ‘ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns’ by 2030.
At this workshop you can expect to:
- explore society’s future needs and aspirations, and the actions needed to achieve SDG12
- understand the challenges of producing goods and services to ensure human wellbeing without damaging the planet
- identify solutions to unsustainable consumption patterns and the role of different organisations in delivering them
- find opportunities to collaborate with other participants to increase impact.
Bioregional is a charity and social enterprise that champions a better way to live. In the run up to the creation of the SDGs we worked with international partners and governments to make sure the critical issue of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) was properly recognised. We are now developing practical solutions for implementing the SDGs, with a particular focus on SDG12. Find out more about Bioregional’s work on the SDGs
