First developed by the United Nations, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an ambitious effort for countries to address the world’s biggest problems. Yet much of the remarkable work happening now is at the sub-national level, by cities, local governments, and the private sector. Anthony F. Pipa of the Brookings Institution and Catherine P. Sheehy, head of Advisory Solutions for Environment and Sustainability at UL, join Deep Dish to discuss the way forward.
For more from the Council on the SDGs and cities, join us for the Pritzker Forum on Global Cities, June 3-5 in Chicago. UL is a lead sponser of the Forum. Also check out the Council's recent report Global Goals, Global Cities: Achieving the SDGs through Collective Local Action.
