Perspectives and challenges of Agenda 2030. Equality, Sustainable Communities and Strong Institutions for Development, Peace and the Achievement of SDGs
Guadalupe (Cáceres), from 26th to 28th June 2019
The course is a continuation of the courses organised in 2017 and 2018 to approach the SDG in the light of Agenda 2030 by analysing the mechanisms and strategies for implementation, the results that have been achieved since 2015, the perspectives and challenges it faces, and the role of different public and private players in achieving them.
A specific analysis will be carried out focusing, on the one hand, and transversally, on the SDG aimed at reducing inequalities and the great challenge of achieving gender equality in all fields and at all levels of developed and developing societies as a horizontal basis for the success of Agenda 2030. We will also approach the SDGs with a specific focus on the development of sustainable communities and the commitment to models that guarantee the sustainability of life. It will therefore be necessary to analyse, taking as a reference the European and Latin American regions, the model of economic growth that we want to develop in our environment, the potential and challenges of new strategies such as the circular economy, or the revision of essential concepts such as the social contract, and how all this influences human mobility and migrations worldwide.
We will also analyse the link and importance of having solid institutions that, in a troubled world, guarantee peace, development, justice and stability, especially in the face of the rise of radicalism, populism, extremism and disinformation.
In the same way, we intend to study the role of the different key players in the achievement of these Objectives, which range from the public administration, the university, the private sector and business, civil society, and citizens themselves from a multilevel perspective, as well as those strategic Alliances between them necessary for the achievement of these common objectives.
