Event Details

The U.N. Perspective Series are free events aiming to build community and convene global and local perspectives on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Presented by the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB), each U.N. Perspective Series focuses on a specific SDG and opens dialogue between global experts, local leaders, and the Greater Boston community.

This January, in anticipation of the 2023 UN Water Conference in New York next March, we will be focusing on SDG 6: Clean Water & Sanitation to learn from leaders, both local and global, who are championing water equity in the Boston community and beyond.

UN Water shares that “water is inextricably linked to the three pillars of sustainable development, and it integrates social, cultural, economic and political values. It is crosscutting and supports the achievement of many SDGs through close linkages with climate, energy, cities, the environment, food security, poverty, gender equality and health, amongst others. With climate change profoundly affecting our economies, societies and environment, water is indeed the biggest deal breaker to achieve the internationally agreed water-related goals and targets, including those contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”

This event is free, but registration is required. Please note that the event is open to all ages, but the lecture is tailored to adult audiences.
