SDG – You may have come across this acronym and wondered what it meant or how it affected you? It stands for Sustainable Development Goals and is part of the UN Agenda for Sustainable Development. There are 17 goals in total across all areas of our lives and essentially are meant to be “a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”
What does that mean for us in our everyday lives and how can we help to achieve these SDGs?
SDG Week will begin on 23rd September and last until 1st October and Kilkenny County Council Library Service is delighted to announce an extensive programme of activities to tackle the issues in a variety of practical ways. There are a series of talks/workshops across the County to highlight and promote SDGs and to help highlight ways of more sustainable living.
“SDG Week is a great opportunity to get further inspiration, discover new initiatives and ways to help improve our communities and the wider environment. The library continues to be your first port of call for information and guidance on ways to a more sustainable way of living” comments Josephine Coyne, County Librarian.
