Public Diplomacy for Sustainable Development

Lear Center Managing Director Johanna Blakley will be among the participants at this forum, hosted by the USC Center on Public Diplomacy. The event will explore the vital role of public diplomacy in engaging a broad array of stakeholders to implement the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals build on the Millennium Development Goals, a 15-year concerted effort of national governments, the international community, civil society and the private sector concluded in 2015. The new SDGs, and the broader sustainability agenda, go much further than the MDGs, addressing the root causes of poverty and the universal need for development that works for all people.

Featured speakers include scholars and researchers, as well as representatives from key UN organizations and select countries. View photos of the participants in this Flickr stream.
