Onlince Course: Localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The world organization United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Barcelona Provincial Council, through the Observatory for Decentralized Cooperation and UCLG Learning, are launching an online training under the name "Localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Tools for Local Transformation".
This online course, with the collaboration of UN-Habitat and UNDP, responds to local and regional governments' need around the world to address the challenge of adopting the 2030 Agenda and implementing the SDGs in their territories. In this sense, the course aims to train and provide tools for local and regional governments (LRGs) and their associations to implement and adapt the SDGs at the local level, a process known as "localizing the SDGs".
In order to enable the participation of as many countries as possible, the course will be available in three languages: Spanish, English and French.
A total of 35 places are offered for each of the three language modalities (English, Spanish and French). The course carries no cost for participants since it is fully funded by the Barcelona Provincial Council and UCLG.
Any person, regardless of nationality and whose professional activity consists of managing public development policies in any country may enroll in the course. Registration period ends September 17, 2019.
