The 2030 Agenda: An integrated approach to sustainable development

IE School of Global and Public Affairs is organising a masterclass on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development on the sidelines of the SDG Global Festival of Action in Bonn. The session will be delivered by Simona Costanzo Sow, Learning Portfolio Manager at the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC). The masterclass will explore key notions underlying sustainable development, examine the three pillars of sustainable development, as well as the five areas of critical importance (also known as the 5P). The speaker will touch upon the inter-linkages between sustainable development and climate change, planetary boundaries, social inclusion, and human rights, and will also explore key lessons learnt from the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals.

Representatives from IE University and UNSSC will be present at the event to provide interested candidates with more information about the joint UNSSC-IE Master in International Development (MID) program.
