Only 3 of the 8 MDGs were achieved so far. But what follows after the MDGs terminate in 2015? Within the UN, there is a lively debate about establishing Sustainable Development Goals, so-called SDGs, which shall serve for the purpose of securing sustainable development. But what exactly is that? What does the Post2015 Agenda have to do with us, and most importantly: How can we contribute? These are questions being discussed at this year’s Summer School of UNYA Germany.

The programm includes discussions with guest speakers, visits to the UN Secretariats in Bonn (which is the UN City hosting climate agencies such as UNFCC and UNCCD), and talks and lively workshops. There is no participation fee, but voluntary contributions of 15 EUR for catering are appreciated.
The summer school takes place in German and English, with interpretation for guests. Please register online until 08 August. For more information, contact UNYA Germany.
