“Citizens of Toledo will highlight their commitments to contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable world, moving from reflection to action. In addition, experts and activists will discuss and exchange experiences that promote the necessary transformations to address the social and environmental challenges marked in the 2030 Agenda,” the NGO Coordinator reported in a statement.
The new development model considers cities as a basic element for promoting the necessary actions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Therefore, during three days in which the Forum will take place, it will emphasize the need for a municipal and citizen commitment that drives profound changes in ways of life and the model of society to achieve a more just, sustainable and inclusive world.
“The Toledo Manifesto for a Culture of Peace and the Sustainable Development Goals will shape this commitment, around which a great citizen alliance will be formed that constitutes a turning point in the location of the 2030 Agenda”, the Coordinator highlighted.
