The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call from the United Nations for the adoption of measures to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. In this regard, a meeting was held at the Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLAC), which brought together key actors to achieve the country's objectives.

How are the different sectors of society interrelated to achieve the objectives of sustainable development? With that question in mind, Cepal, together with UNDESA, UNDP and in collaboration with the government, held a workshop to increase the awareness of the different actors (private sector, civil society, academia and public sector) in relation to the 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development, activity in which Fundación Colunga participated actively.

The day also included government authorities, representatives of the United Nations, ECLAC and UNDESA, as well as various civil society organizations.

The workshop contemplated a space for dialogue between actors, to identify the challenges that Chilean society has in the implementation of said agenda. "This meeting was very important because Chile will for the first time deliver a voluntary report related to how we are progressing together in compliance with the 2030 Agenda, so it is important that we work with a unified perspective," says Paulina Rojas, Executive Director Subrogante de Colunga Foundation.
