Mobilisation campaign to act for SDGs in Latvia

By Latvian Platform for Development Cooperation  (LAPAS)

On September 20th, the Latvian Platform for Development Cooperation (LAPAS), in collaboration with the Latvian Multistakeholder Coalition, has launched an information campaign on the mobilisation of regional communities to act for SDGs implementation. The campaign’s motto is “Target the development!” (in Latvian: “Mērķē attīstībā!”). 

The campaign’s focus will be awareness-raising on the Sustainable Development Goals and a call to action for implementations of SDGs. 

The plan is to involve at least 30 active community stakeholders all around the country, including municipalities, educational institutions, libraries, museums, civil society organisations. These stakeholders will coordinate educational workshops, online campaigns, and activities to find local problems and their solutions and build community resilience and global competencies. 

All identified problems will be presented by LAPAS and the Latvian Multistakeholder Coalition to national decision-makers. The solutions found and proposed during workshops will be submitted to the Conference on the Future of Europe platform.

The campaign will run until the end of November 2021, culminating in the Final Conference held during the Global Education Week 2021.

The campaign is financed by the EEA and Norwegian grants, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, the European Union and the Council of Europe.
