Getting to Carbon Zero – How can the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Help?

A seminar was held on 8 May at AUT – over a hundred people attended (with registrations reaching capacity within five days)! The event featured a panel discussion, with Rt Hon Helen Clark, Dr. David Hall, and Dr. Jo Spratt, facilitated by Executive Director Kathy Errington.

In 2015, United Nations (UN) Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals — a universal call to action to eradicate poverty, promote global prosperity, foster peace, and protect the environment by 2030. But do they work? How can they be used to get us to Carbon Zero?
