2019-08-06 2019-08-09 Europe/London Commonwealth Local Government Conference 2019 Commonwealth Local Government Conferences are held every two years in different regions of the Commonwealth. The conferences bring together some 500-600 top local government policy makers, practitioners and other stakeholders – including heads of government, ministers, mayors and council leaders, senior officials, and partners from development agencies, academia and civil society and the corporate and finance sectors – to discuss policy developments, share and learn about new ideas and innovative solutions and products to help councils and local governments improve their processes and services. The conferences provide a unique international opportunity for local government policy-makers and practitioners to meet and exchange ideas, information and good practice. 2019 CLGF theme: Citizen centred local government: driving inclusive social and economic change. Local government is tasked with creating communities that are safe, inclusive, sustainable and prosperous but there are many challenges to providing high quality services that meet the needs of all citizens. As well as introducing new policies and practices, local government must ensure that citizens are behind the decisions required to transform communities.     Learn and share The Conference - CLGC2019 - will be attended by over 600 senior policy makers from around the Commonwealth including local and national governments, regional local government associations, research pioneers and academics, civil society and the private sector. It will take the form of keynote speeches and plenary sessions, working groups and study visits with a rich cultural programme. There will be an opportunity to learn and share about success and innovation from Commonwealth countries, including showcasing good practice from Sri Lanka. In addition, the outcomes will be presented to the 2020 CHOGM in Rwanda.  Colombo Commonwealth Local Government Forum

2019-08-26 2019-08-30 Europe/London United Nations Summer Academy The UN Summer Academy (UNSA) is an engaging five-day programme that fosters rich interaction on issues relevant to the work of the UN and its partners in the context of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and the Paris Agreement through panel discussions, App Labs, a Share Fair, and a choice between several excursions.  Introduction Leveraging the presence of 20 UN entities as well as various leading international development institutions based in Bonn, the UN Summer Academy provides participants with unparalleled learning and networking opportunities. As the world community prepares for the first SDG Summit in September 2019 under the auspices of the UN General Assembly, the 2019 UN Summer Academy will focus on reviewing progress made in view of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda thus far.  Participants will discuss approaches to reporting and stakeholder engagement at local, regional and international levels with a view to identifying synergies and building new partnerships that incorporate lessons learnt so far and actively build upon that learning. The academy combines academic rigour with cutting-edge thinking, builds on renowned faculty and is open to professionals from all sectors. Through experiential learning methodologies, participants explore transformative approaches required for implementation of the 2030 Agenda and share concrete examples and practices from diverse country contexts and stakeholder perspectives.  Thanks to the generous support of the government of the Federal Republic of Germany, this course is offered at a reduced price of USD 1250.  Objectives Upon successful completion of the UN Summer Academy, participants will: Demonstrate a sound understanding of the key notions underpinning the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change; Demonstrate an improved understanding of the features and role of SDG review and reporting mechanisms at different levels; as well as approaches to financing the SDGs, policy coherence and SDG advocacy; Have benefitted from unparalleled networking opportunities, and demonstrate an increased awareness of the role of different development partners; Have received first-hand exposure to good practices in the area of sustainable development at the local level.  Course Methodology Recognising that transformative learning cannot take place through classical chalk and talk lectures, the UN Summer Academy is designed using experiential learning methodologies that combine panel discussions featuring high-level speakers with interactive opportunities for knowledge exchange and experience sharing. A Share Fair is an important element of the Summer Academy - aimed at providing participants with a platform to engage with different organisations and showcase the work of their own organisations to an international audience.

App Lab sessions on different aspects of sustainable development offer participants the opportunity to explore specific aspects of sustainable development.  The 2019 UN Summer Academy will focus on reviewing progress made in view of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda thus far. Panel discussions, plenary sessions and other interactive exercises will discuss approaches to reporting and stakeholder engagement at local, regional and international levels with a view to identifying synergies and building new partnerships that incorporate lessons learnt so far and actively build upon that learning.  Target Audience UN staff, national and local government representatives, civil society representatives, academics, private sector representatives, as well as a select number of Master and post-graduate students.  Cost of Participation The course fee of 1250 USD covers the following: Five days of training, including a full-day excursion to a sustainable development project.

2019-10-24 2019-10-25 Europe/London Creating citizenship: the SDGS as an opportunity for all / Venice City Solutions The Venice City Solutions Series is a yearly event to discuss one specific issue that can facilitate the role of local governments as key implementers of Agenda 2030. In 2019, Venice City Solutions wants to concentrate in how the SDGs can be an instrument to create citizenship; to promote the values of Agenda 2030 and to bring the SDGs closer to the people. Local governments have a key position to help creating citizenship and enhancing the sense of belonging to the community.  Many local governments have found on Agenda 2030 a useful tool to explain to citizens the course of their actions. The SDGs are easy to understand by the population, who tends to feel immediately connected to the concrete issues the SDGs are calling for. Venice City Solutions this year wants to identify how cities and their local governments are using the SDGs as tools to create citizenship and reconnect with their citizens.

2019-05-27 2019-06-28 Europe/London Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development - May An engaging online course designed to equip participants with a sound understanding of why policy coherence is important for achieving sustainable development, what coherent policy-making entails, and what are the specific tools, mechanisms and approaches that can be employed to foster policy coherence.   Introduction The programme explores approaches to cross-organisational and cross-sectoral policy coherence on the national, regional and international levels, with a view to equipping participants with a sound understanding of why policy coherence is important for achieving sustainable development, what coherent policy-making entails, and what are the specific tools, mechanisms and approaches that can be employed to foster policy coherence. Inputs by high-level speakers from the UN System, think tanks, academia as well as the OECD will complement the course. Conventional approaches to development often focus on sector-specific economic results, working under the assumption that markets function perfectly. Such approaches do not adequately consider externalities and their impact on society, equity or the environment. They also often ignore the transboundary and inter-generational effects that they produce, which gives rise to siloed, contradictory policies that often undermine one another. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development demands integrated approaches that view development through a holistic lens, using a systemic approach that takes account of the causal relationship and the synergies and trade-offs produced among the social, economic, and environmental dimensions in a comprehensive manner. Sustainable Development Goal 17 (and more specifically target 17.14) of the 2030 Agenda establishes policy coherence for sustainable development as a crucial means of achieving the agenda. This course was designed by the UN System Staff College Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development, in coordination with the National University of Singapore acting through its Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and the Hertie School of Governance based in Berlin, and in collaboration with the OECD Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development Unit in Paris.   Objectives Upon successful completion of this course, participants will: Demonstrate a sound understanding of the vision and principles underlying the 2030 Agenda, the evolution of the concept of policy coherence for sustainable development and the importance of policy coherence for sustainable development; Demonstrate a good understanding of the relevance of policy coherence as an approach and a tool to achieve sustainable development outcomes, and be able to recognise policies that are mutually reinforcing across governance levels; Be equipped with knowledge of the specific tools, mechanisms and approaches that can be employed to foster policy coherence, including partnerships and multi-stakeholder engagement.   Course Methodology UNSSC online courses are designed to deliver maximum learning outcomes through optimal time investments into carefully chosen high-quality learning materials. Specially tailored to the needs of the professional interested in developing skills to advance their career or deepening their knowledge on a particular subject matter, our highly facilitated online courses combine self-paced study modules with applied learning components such as case studies, interactive exercises and collaborative group work. Participants also benefit from live moderated webinars which feature valuable inputs from renowned subject matter experts, and allow real-time dialogue with the high-level speakers. Webinar recordings are also made available to ensure that participants have a flexible and seamless learning experience. A competent facilitator guides and assists the participants all along the course, and provides real-time feedback on activities and exercises. Our user-friendly social online learning platform provides participants with the opportunity to connect with peers from diverse organisational backgrounds, fostering peer-to-peer learning. While being interactive and participatory, UNSSC online courses give learners the opportunity to complete activities when it best fits their schedule. Participants are largely free to determine their own weekly study plan. Typically lasting between 4 to 6 weeks and demanding 6 hours of dedication a week, UNSSC online courses incorporate the same high academic rigour as any UNSSC face-to-face programme.   Course Contents Week 1 provides an introduction to the vision and principles of the 2030 Agenda, as well as the concept and evolution of policy coherence for sustainable development, explains vertical and horizontal coherence as well as the different mechanisms that enhance policy coherence across the policy cycle. Week 2 discusses the importance of Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD) in the context of SDG 17 of the 2030 Agenda and introduces some of the OECD approaches towards understanding the concept of PCSD. Week 3 focuses on the importance of policy coherence at the national, regional, and international levels and discusses examples of policy coherence for sustainable development. Week 4 looks at tools and review mechanisms to assess the integration of the 2030 Agenda at the national level and tracking progress on policy coherence. Week 5 recaps core notions of PCSD and focuses on partnerships and multi-stakeholder engagement to foster policy coherence for sustainable development.   Target Audience Development practitioners from the UN system, governments, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society and academia.   Cost of Participation The course fee of 500 USD covers the following: Unlimited access to course materials (incl. exclusive video material and key readings), recording of webinars and speakers’ presentations. Participation in live webinars with renowned subject matter experts. Exclusive access to UNSSC online social learning environment with training and supporting background materials, and the opportunity to stay connected with colleagues. Certificates from the United Nations System Staff College will be awarded to participants upon completion of the course.   Course Dates and Venue This online course will run from 27 May - 28 June 2019.     Registration For more information and to register, please go to http://bit.ly/PCSD2019-1    Deadline for enrolment is 13 May 2019 Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact sustainable-development@unssc.org.

2019-06-25 9:00 AM 2019-06-28 6:00 PM Europe/London Applying Design Thinking in Implementing the 2030 Agenda: An Innovative Approach to Innovation Applying the principles of design thinking in the context of sustainable development, this engaging four-day course enables participants to employ integrative and cross-disciplinary thinking in order to develop innovative, human-centred solutions in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.   Introduction This programme will enable participants to understand the importance of innovation in implementing the 2030 Agenda. By guiding participants through the different stages of the design thinking process, this course will empower them to apply integrative and cross-disciplinary thinking in order to come up with human-centred solutions or reconsider existing organisational initiatives in support of the 2030 Agenda. Participants will also benefit from an ‘innovation toolkit for leaders’ that will encourage them to apply design thinking in their own context. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development demands innovative leaders who are capable of employing integrated approaches that deliver transformative results. This requires viewing development interventions through a holistic lens and assessing their impact on the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, as well as carefully considering the synergies and trade-offs produced by them. Traditional approaches to development programming that focus on individual sectors and patchwork policy-making are not enough to address the challenges facing the world today in a comprehensive way. Recognising that employing the same approaches over and over again will not yield different results, the notion of sustainable development requires all-of-society to come up with novel, innovative and human-centred approaches. It urges us to go back to the drawing board and think creatively, innovatively and comprehensively. The notion of design thinking focuses on the human experience. In essence, design thinking is a human-centred systematic approach to problem-solving. When applied in the context of sustainable development, this approach can result in local, collaborative, and participatory initiatives that are founded on the local context rather than being retrofitted to it. Grounded on key thinking paradigms of being holistic, uninhibited, collaborative, iterative, and visual, the design thinking approach fosters integrative and cross-disciplinary thinking.   Objectives Upon successful completion of this course, participants will: Demonstrate a sound understanding of the notion of sustainable development, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, its vision and principles; and the holistic approach of the 5Ps – People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnerships; Demonstrate a sound understanding of the key principles and stages of the design thinking process, the concept of innovation and types of innovation; Be able to apply design thinking to analyse development initiatives within a given local context, and be able to apply integrative and cross-disciplinary thinking in support of human-centered and sustainable solutions   Course Methodology This face-to-face course combines inputs and lectures by high-level subject matter experts with opportunities for knowledge sharing and participatory exercises. Participants are led to apply their learning through application-oriented learning methodologies such as case studies, collaborative group exercises, team discussions and dialogues with the speakers.   Course Contents Sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development; vision and principles; key principles and stages of the design thinking process: empathising, defining, ideating, prototyping and testing; innovation and types of innovation; collaborative design rooted in culture and context; and cross-disciplinary and integrative thinking.   Target Audience Heads of UN Agencies at country level and other senior UN staff, as well as senior public and private sector representatives.    Cost of participation The course fee of 2500 USD covers the following: Four days of training with a balance of presentations and group work on case studies and exercises. Exclusive access to UNSSC online social learning environment with training and supporting background materials, and the opportunity to stay connected with colleagues. All course materials, resources and contacts. Participants are expected to cover all travel and lodging costs related to their attendance of the course. Certificates from the United Nations System Staff College will be awarded to participants upon completion of the course.

Se llevará a cabo un análisis específico centrándonos por un lado, y de manera transversal, en los ODS dirigidos a reducir las desigualdades y el gran desafío para alcanzar la igualdad de género en todos los campos y niveles de las sociedades desarrolladas y en vías de desarrollo como base horizontal para el éxito de la Agenda 2030. De igual manera se llevará a cabo una aproximación a los ODS con un enfoque específico sobre el desarrollo de comunidades sostenibles y la apuesta por modelos que garanticen la sostenibilidad de la vida. Cabrá por lo tanto analizar, tomando como referencia las regiones europea y latinoamericana, el modelo de crecimiento económico que queremos desarrollar en nuestro entorno, el potencial y retos de nuevas estrategias como la economía circular, o la revisión de conceptos esenciales como el contrato social, y como todo ello influye en la movilidad humana y las migraciones a nivel mundial. Así mismo se analizará el vínculo e importancia de contar para ello con instituciones sólidas que, en un mundo convulso, garanticen la paz, el desarrollo, la justicia y la estabilidad, especialmente ante el auge de radicalismos, populismos, extremismos y la desinformación. De la misma manera se pretende estudiar el papel de los diferentes actores clave en la consecución de estos Objetivos, que van desde la administración pública, la universidad, el sector privado y la empresa, la sociedad civil, y los propios ciudadanos desde una perspectiva multinivel, así como y aquellas Alianzas estratégicas necesarias entre los mismos para la consecución de estos objetivos comunes.

Day 2: The Partnering Cycle: understanding the different stages and how to use them. Day 3: Ethics and reputational risks. Partnership and due diligence. Partnering with the Private Sector. Day 4: Partnering examples from within the UN and from civil society. The way forward.   Upon successful completion of this course, participants will: · Understand why multi-stakeholder partnerships are crucial for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement; · Have reflected upon challenges and opportunities regarding partnership development; · Be familiarised with policies, guidance and tools that facilitate partnerships between the UN and other stakeholders; · Be cognisant of the drive and different roles of different development actors; · Have enhanced the knowledge and skills to build substantive and sustainable partnerships. The course builds on interactive methodologies as well as the expertise from subject matter experts and participants representing different sectors. It also features application through the use of real-life case studies and practical exercises. The training programme promotes intellectual and practical knowledge sharing, and fosters a culture of understanding and cross-fertilisation among participants. It offers a venue for networking among participants of various organisations aiming at fruitful collaborations and partnerships.   For more information and to register, please visit: http://bit.ly/BPSD2019 Deadline for registration is 21 June 2019.

2019-08-26 2019-08-30 Europe/London United Nations Summer Academy United Nations Summer Academy 2030 Agenda: Taking Stock and Looking Ahead  The UN Summer Academy (UNSA) is an engaging five-day programme that fosters rich interaction on issues relevant to the work of the UN and its partners in the context of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and the Paris Agreement through panel discussions, App Labs, a Share Fair, and a choice between several excursions.  Introduction Leveraging the presence of 20 UN entities as well as various leading international development institutions based in Bonn, the UN Summer Academy provides participants with unparalleled learning and networking opportunities. As the world community prepares for the first SDG Summit in September 2019 under the auspices of the UN General Assembly, the 2019 UN Summer Academy will focus on reviewing progress made in view of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda thus far. Participants will discuss approaches to reporting and stakeholder engagement at local, regional and international levels with a view to identifying synergies and building new partnerships that incorporate lessons learnt so far and actively build upon that learning. The academy combines academic rigour with cutting-edge thinking, builds on renowned faculty and is open to professionals from all sectors. Through experiential learning methodologies, participants explore transformative approaches required for implementation of the 2030 Agenda and share concrete examples and practices from diverse country contexts and stakeholder perspectives. Thanks to the generous support of the government of the Federal Republic of Germany, this course is offered at a reduced price of USD 1250.  Objectives Upon successful completion of the UN Summer Academy, participants will: Demonstrate a sound understanding of the key notions underpinning the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change; Demonstrate an improved understanding of the features and role of SDG review and reporting mechanisms at different levels; as well as approaches to financing the SDGs, policy coherence and SDG advocacy; Have benefitted from unparalleled networking opportunities, and demonstrate an increased awareness of the role of different development partners; Have received first-hand exposure to good practices in the area of sustainable development at the local level. Course Methodology Recognising that transformative learning cannot take place through classical chalk and talk lectures, the UN Summer Academy is designed using experiential learning methodologies that combine panel discussions featuring high-level speakers with interactive opportunities for knowledge exchange and experience sharing. A Share Fair is an important element of the Summer Academy - aimed at providing participants with a platform to engage with different organisations and showcase the work of their own organisations to an international audience. Participants have a choice of several parallel excursions, which focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable development. Application-oriented workshops known as ‘App Labs’ provide participants with opportunities to apply the concepts learnt and engage in peer-to-peer learning and knowledge exchange, thus benefiting from a wide range of experiences and perspectives from diverse stakeholders.  Course Contents The UN Summer Academy introduces conceptual approaches underpinning the notion of sustainable development, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the Paris Agreement on Climate Change under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. App Lab sessions on different aspects of sustainable development offer participants the opportunity to explore specific aspects of sustainable development. The 2019 UN Summer Academy will focus on reviewing progress made in view of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda thus far. Panel discussions, plenary sessions and other interactive exercises will discuss approaches to reporting and stakeholder engagement at local, regional and international levels with a view to identifying synergies and building new partnerships that incorporate lessons learnt so far and actively build upon that learning. Target Audience UN staff, national and local government representatives, civil society representatives, academics, private sector representatives, as well as a select number of Master and post-graduate students. Cost of Participation The course fee of 1250 USD covers the following: Five days of training, including a full-day excursion to a sustainable development project. Exclusive access to a UNSSC online social learning environment with training and supporting background materials, and the opportunity to stay connected with colleagues. All course materials, resources and contacts.  Participants are expected to cover all travel and lodging costs related to their attendance at the Summer Academy.  Certificates from the United Nations System Staff College will be awarded to participants who attend the Summer Academy  Course Dates and Venue This course will run from 26 Aug - 30 Aug 2019 in Bonn, Germany.  Registration For more information and to register, please go to http://bit.ly/UNSA2019  Deadline for enrolment is 12 August 2019.
