The University of the Philippines-Centre International de Formation des Autorités et Leaders or the International Center for Authorities and Leaders Philippines (UP-CIFAL Philippines), together with the UP System Public Affairs, invites you to “Leaders in Focus: Embedding Sustainable Development in the Governance Agenda of Candidates” on April 28, 2022 (Thursday) at 12:00 noon.
With the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, local and national governments are responsible for context- and culture-specific integration of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in national and local policies and strategies. Beyond being the implementer of the SDGs in the country, the United Nations (UN) also recognizes the national government as the catalyst for sustainable development and nation-building.
As the upcoming 2022 Philippine elections draw nearer, it is vital to provide an avenue to the country’s future leaders and elevate the discourse on their plans and prospects in relation to achieving the SDGs, reaching the furthest, and leaving no one behind.
“Leaders in Focus” brings in six presidential candidates to contribute to this goal through an insightful session. This public forum provides candidates a platform to expound on their SDG agenda and how they aim to promote and attain the targets of these goals in their leadership.
This event is free and open to the public via the official TVUP YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/TVUPph). You may also watch through the University of the Philippines YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/UniversityofthePhilippines1908) and UP-CIFAL Philippines YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/CIFALPhilippines).
