The EACD invites you to join this event, partnering with K1 and hosted at Kommunikation & Sprog discussing "How to communicate the Global Goals in an effective and relevant manner?"

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (the Global Goals) represent the most ambitious and most crucial plan the world has ever seen. It is increasingly clear to everyone that action is required and it needs to have support and in a large part driven by companies. It is not enough to point fingers at regulators, governments and the others. It is not enough to be placed on the sideline and carry on business as usual. It is certainly not enough not to know enough.

But then, what to do as a communicator, often times being used to legitimizing CSR-activities and peripheral professes. Now the time has come to let responsibility in to the strategy, the operations, the core of the companies. But how to do that? What should be the mindset and what could be relevant initial actions? Join the event and get a sense of urgency and a few tips and tricks.
