Around the occasion of the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development, which took place between 10-17 July, Dianova has posted for the past two months a series of thematic texts and resources related to the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). Marking this period of reflections around the experiences in preparation for and during the HLPF, we prepared a selection of short impactful messages inspired in these process and in statements from different stakeholders on a multitude of topics that are linked to the global agenda for sustainable development. Join us in spreading these messages on twitter and other social media.
