The UN has created a plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace and freedom.

In this very engaging conversation we learned that the 193 member nations agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals and committed to achieving them by 2030. We also learned that the SDGs are for everyone — all 7 billion of us. 

To reach them private individuals, corporations, governments, innovators, media owners — again everyone — needs to get involved. The best way to take action is to focus on one goal and find the right tools to reach it.

As SecondHouse we are committed to Goal #3, Good Health & Wellbeing, and conservation of the environment (Goals #13, 14, 15). Our founder and Managing Partner of Departure, Janera Soerel, facilitated the conversation between:

  • Sergio Fernandez de Cordova, Co-Founder & Chairman Public Foundation
  • Jason Harris, CEO Mekanism & Board UN Social Impact Leadership Council
  • Mara van Loggerenberg, Deputy Director Global Policy & UN Relations at the UN Foundation
  • Will Kennedy, Senior Program Officer UN Office for Partnerships.
