The achievement of the UN SDGs Agenda 2030: A Human Right?

8 December 12:00pm - 3:30pm
Rutherford House, Lecture Theatre 2 Pipitea Campus, Victoria University of Wellington

Dear members, friends and supporters of UNA New Zealand,

The UN SDGs programme, or Agenda 2030, is a comprehensive programme with specific goals for the promotion of the social, cultural, economic and political progress of all the people in the world. At this time of global political, economic and ecological crisis, the SDGs are a programme with no specific partisan bias. But is it a human right that people throughout the world should enjoy the benefits of the UN SDGs programme (Agenda 2030)? The UN believes it is. And thus UNA New Zealand believes so too.

We invite you to a seminar where leading academics and practitioners in development and human rights will discuss this issue. The event is organised by the United Nations Association of New Zealand to mark this year’s Human Rights Day (10 Dec).

What: A seminar on The achievement of the UN SDGs (Agenda 2030)–A Human Right?
When: Thursday, 8 December, 12-3.30pm
Where: Rutherford House Lecture Theatre Level 2 (RHLT2), Pipitea Campus, Victoria University of Wellington
