October 2020 RESULTS UK Grassroots Call - A fairer world by 2030

7 Oct 2020

This month we heard from Lilei Chow, Senior Policy and Advocacy Adviser on the Sustainable Development Goals at Save the Children, who is also a Co-Chair of the BOND SDG Group, which helps coordinate the different NGOs’ work on the SDGs. She explained how progress in international development has been massively set back by the COVID-19 pandemic; but that the SDGs provide us the only credible road map we have to achieving a fairer world by 2030. You can watch the recording of the call here. Take the October monthly action here.
