About the Conference

Sustainably yours: Community Development and a sustainable just future.

The Conference will address the challenge of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals to Community Development practitioners, agencies and academics.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

In 2015 member states of the UN adopted Agenda 2030 including the 17 Goals for Sustainable Development bringing together goals for social environmental and economic aspiration within a sustainability model. Delivery is to be effected by collaborations between state, private sector and civil society. Unlike the former Millennium Development Goals, the Sustainable Development Goals apply to both the developing and more developed world recognising that the opportunities to improve social, economic and environmental wellbeing are present in all societies.

There are 5 Streams to the conference:

  • Responding to conflict and forced migration
