One Day Seminar

"SDGs as Future Agenda of NGOs"

27th February 2023 (10am – 01 pm) at AHK-NCRD Islamabad

On the occasion of World NGO Day 2023, we are inspired to organize a seminar “SDGs as Future Agenda of NGOs”. It will be an important gathering of leaders and professionals from the NGO sector who are committed to making a positive impact in their communities and beyond. The event aims to bring together a diverse group of individuals to discuss, learn, and collaborate on how NGOs can align their work with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and make them a central part of their future agendas. The event will provide a platform for attendees to learn from expert speakers, engage in thought-provoking discussions, and share their own experiences and best practices.

The SDGs represent a comprehensive and ambitious agenda for global development and are widely recognized as the blueprint for a better and more sustainable future. For NGOs, the SDGs provide a clear framework for action and a roadmap for creating positive change. The “SDGs as Future Agenda of NGOs” event will explore the opportunities and challenges facing NGOs in incorporating the SDGs into their work and will provide attendees with the tools and resources they need to effectively align their work with these global goals.

Whether you are a seasoned professional or just starting your career in the NGO sector, this event is an opportunity not to be missed. Join us for a day of inspiring discussions, meaningful connections, and a celebration of the positive impact that NGOs can make when they align their work with the SDGs. Let’s work together to ensure that the future agenda of NGOs is one of sustainable development, equitable progress, and positive change.
