Date: Monday 20th February. World Day of Social Justice Seminar

How is Ireland performing on the Global (Sustainable Development) Goals?

Social Justice Ireland's invites you to our Global Justice Seminar 2017 which will present an Index for Sustainable Communities and a Sustainable Planet. This index is based on the Global (Sustainable Development) Goals.

It will show how Ireland is performing on social, economic and environmental indicators and will compare Ireland with the other members of the European Union.

Respondents to the paper (Sara Burke of the Centre for Health Policy in TCD and Lorna Gold of Trocaire) will review the progress outlined from both a national and a global perspective, and there will be opportunities to discuss the key issues and how we in Ireland can make a real contribution to building sustainable communities and a sustainable planet.

The UN Global Goals - co-negotiated by Ireland - offer a framework for every country to work towards a more just and equitable society. Social Justice Ireland is marking the UN World Day of Social Justice with this important seminar looking at Ireland's progress to date in meeting our responsibilities under the Global Goals.
