SDG Ambition For Young Professionals

On January 26 one of the participating teams of the Young Professionals Program of Global Compact NL organizes a virtual event for young professionals. Inspired by the SDG Ambition, which is an accelerator program designed to help companies set ambitious goals and accelerate the integration of the SDGs into business strategies. 

Our aim is to help and inspire young professionals to draw up their personal SDG Ambition. We want to enable young professionals like us to learn more about the SDGs, understand how they can contribute best to the goal of their choice, hence translate their ambition into daily work and projects, involving their colleagues and management.

During this event several seasoned sustainability experts will reflect on the role that young professionals could take within their organizations. Furthermore inspiring young professionals will share their stories on how to get involved and make impact. Last but not least three action oriented  break-out sessions will give partipants enough food for thought.
