UN Briefing to Rotary Canberra On the Sustainable Development Goals

The UNIC Director was invited to speak at a Canberra Rotary Club meeting to talk about the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals.  The talk was well received judging from the engaging questions that followed.

The presentation gave a broad outline of the structure and role of the Organization and then looked more deeply at the Sustainable Development Goals.  The message given was that while Governments had a key role to play in implementing the Goals it was up to each of us individually, or through civil society organizations, such as Rotary, to play our part by living sustainably and advocating for strong leadership on the issue.
