Geography and the SDGs


WHAT will be done


The Geography Society of Ireland in conjunction with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, the Central Statistics Office and Ordanance Survey Ireland.
This conference will focus on establishing the links between government policy on the SDGs and geographic research and work of geographers in relation to the 17 goals. It will also examine the potential for geographers and those interested in geography to contribute to the future of The Sustainable Development Goals National Implementation Plan.
This half day event will feature speakers from across government and geographers from across the country and will also provide an opportunity for attendees to provide feedback and recommendations for future government policy.
The Sustainable Development Goals aim to build on the Millennium Development Goals by creating a plan of action for the people, our planet and it’s prosperity. There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which have been adopted by 193 UN member states. The goals are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.
The Irish government has developed a National Implementation Plan for the achievement of the SDGs which is centred on raising awareness, ensuring participation, supporting public contributions and aligning public policy and the GSI believe that geography has an important role to play.
