Event Details

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with their 17 goals, 169 targets, and 232 indicators, set out the aspiration of a greener, fairer future – our 21st Century moonshot. The SDGs have garnered unprecedented political support and opened new policy space, but the questions remain: How do we get there? What does it take to walk the talk? This thought-provoking series explores the SDGs through IIPP’s distinctive lens.

Rooted in new economic thinking, IIPP centres the state’s role in driving innovation, creating public value, and pursuing ambitious missions. IIPP sees strong linkages between public value, missions, and the SDGs’ vision for equity and good work, health and education, and environmental protection. IIPP works with policymakers to harness tools ranging from public investment to procurement to push these goals and it leads the UK’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN UK).  

In this series, IIPP brings together world-leading thinkerspolicymakers, urban designers and artists to think deeply about the tools that they are using to advance the SDGs and the challenges they face. It invites participants to imagine a broader set of tools and pathways for achieving the SDGs and the 2030 moonshot.
