Sustainable Development Goals Workshop Cultivating Strategic Direction and building a personal and professional connection to the Global Goals. Half or full-day or virtual delivery. Australia Wide

The phrase 'Be the Change you wish to see in the world' is attributed to Mahatma Gandi, but going beyond that we need to 'Be the Change you can't see in the world'.

This workshop is destined to be a truly memorable experience for participants- fuelling a higher sense of purpose, responsibility and ethical behaviour in the workplace and as an active and effective global citizen.

This activity and connection- rich workshop brings three exciting core concepts together:

• Sustainable Development Goals to support sustainable business practices
• Personal VIA Strengths to support engagement and connection to specific Global Goals at a personal level (VIA Values in action)
• Cultivating a rich sense of purpose and meaning in the workplace

What are the Global Goals: 17 Sustainable Development Goals

The Global Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals are interconnected and to leave no one behind, it ís important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030. Let your team decide what's important to them and how your organisation can support the Goals in the workplace.

The Objective: To deliver a high impact and powerfully interactive team event that creates a ripple of impact.

This interactive full-day workshop will place an SDG lens on identifying and realising new ways of working + business opportunities. The workshop will feature discussions on the SDGs, trends in sustainable business and examples of companies leading the way in this area.
There will also be collaborative sessions on the relevance of the SDGs to the organisations' customers and staff and how the business can benefit long-term from contributing to the SDGs.

The specific objectives of the workshop are to enable participants to:
• Reflect and project the organisations connect potential, values and vision alignment and approach to the SDGs and sustainability strategy;
• Understand the journey ‘Towards 2030’ agenda, future trends and best practice for companies in Australia;
