LGBTQ2S+ Voices in Sustainable Development

Join ACIC for our community engagement and networking event for Pride 2019!  

ACIC is an Atlantic coalition of individuals, organizations, and institutions which are committed to achieving global sustainability in a peaceful and healthy environment, with social justice, human dignity, and participation for all. ACIC supports its members in international cooperation and education through collective leadership, networking, information, training and coordination, and represents their interests when dealing with government and others.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the international blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we all face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.

Our event:

Many of the SDGs are directly relevant to LGBTQ2S+ communities around the country and the world, and it’s crucial to the Goals’ success that the experiences and voices of LGBTQ2S+ people are heard.

This event will provide people with an opportunity to learn about the SDGs, voice their opinions, and ask questions on how LGBTQ2S+ communities can contribute to local, regional, and global sustainable development—as well as how the Goals can be better used as an inclusive framework.

Come by to network, chat, snack, and learn about Atlantic and global sustainable development!

Appetizers will be provided. This event is 19+.
