Sustainable Development Goals What can we contribute from the events industry?
The United Nations General Assembly created the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, where 17 universal goals were presented.
This plan aims to favor people and the planet to eradicate poverty, strengthen universal peace, access to justice and take care of the planet.
Next, we list them so that you know them:
Eradicate poverty in all its forms throughout the world.
End hunger, achieve food security and better nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
Guarantee a healthy life and promote well-being for everyone of all ages.
Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education, and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.
Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all.
Develop resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.
Reduce inequalities between and within countries.
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
Guarantee sustainable consumption and production patterns.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects.
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources to achieve sustainable development.
Protect, restore and promote the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation, and halt the loss of biological diversity.
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all, and create effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels.
Strengthen the means of implementation and rekindle the global partnership for sustainable development.
But how can we help from the events industry to achieve these objectives?
Using recyclable elements or reusing resources for the construction of stands.
Using energy-efficient lights.
Hiring a temporary staff of different capacities and profiles.
Making donations to educational institutions of surplus branding material (pens, notebooks, etc.)
Transporting ourselves to the sites using public transport or bicycles.

More and more companies are modifying work processes to contribute our grain of sand following the suggestions of the 2030 Agenda with the aim of making a better world.
