Next stop: Bonn

The EEAC Network co-organizes, together with GIZ, a workshop at the U.N. Global Festival of Action 2019. The interactive workshop focuses on multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs), in which stakeholders from the public sector, private sector, civil society and academia cooperate on equal footing in order to implement the SDGs.

Partnerships are crucial for reaching the SDGs – that is widely acknowledged. However:
A) How can we actually make partnerships work (set-up and composition; governance and financing)?
B) When is forming partnerships a suitable approach, and when not (reasoning; legitimacy; characteristics)?

The aim of this session is to:
1. Share practical experience, knowledge and tips as well as further contacts and opportunities to create new partnerships and improve existing ones for participants of the session
2. Create the space and spirit where not only best practices but also ‘failures’ can be shared and discussed.
3. Learn about the experiences with MSPs among Global Festival participants in order to enrich the know-how of the organizing parties.

The Festival

Taking place in Bonn every year, the Festival provides a dynamic and interactive space to showcase the latest innovations, tools and approaches to SDG advocacy and SDG action. It brings together leaders from governments, local authorities, international organizations, civil society, activists, young advocates, the creative industry and the private sector– to scale up the impact of their work and strategize joint actions, whilst motivating new organizations and individuals to join the movement and take action for the SDGs.
