The U.N. Global Goals Jam Hong Kong 2018 – Community Meetup #3
In the build-up to the U.N. Global Goals Jam Hong Kong 2018 (GGJHK2018), which will take place on September 22-23, 2018, we are putting together an inspiring series of talks on 5 selected U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).
Having discussed gender equality in July and clean energy & sustainable cities in August, we will now turn our focus to UNSDGs #1 and #3: No Poverty and Good Health and Well-Being, at our third and final event before the Jam, on Thursday September 6. Economic, physical and mental health are all important focuses as our world continues to develop at a fast pace. Besides ensuring that economic development does not only just benefit a select few, we must also not leave anyone behind when it comes to health and well-being. How can we balance these gargantuan tasks?
Joining us will be luminaries and leaders who have their eyes on the global picture but are doing inspiring work on the ground in Hong Kong, to share with us their thoughts and challenges and inspire us to #Design2030.
