Why are the UN SDG’s important to meetings & events?
Join us on July 19 as we answer this question. Our presenter is an industry expert. Dr. Soyoung Park, Assistant Professor of the Hospitality and Tourism Management Program in the College of Business and an affiliate professor for the Center for Peace, Justice and Human Rights at Florida Atlantic University.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Dr Parks' research utilizes social data analytics and econometrics to examine social issuesin tourism and hospitality, especially those involving children and persons of color. Her presentation will explain the 17 United National Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the important role they play in producing sustainable meetings and events. This is a program you don't want to miss, as it will be the start of a series on SDGs and their role in meetings and events.
