Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Meetup

Description
On 16th October, Social Innovation Japan and EDGEOf will co-host Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Meetup - a melting pot of people interested in and working on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

People from all sectors, backgrounds, nationalities and passions are welcome to join this special evening where we will be sharing each other’s projects, ideas, and stories around today’s pressing issues – from gender equality to climate change and beyond.

There will also be mini-exhibits and booths on display to showcase projects and highlight what people are doing around the SDGs in Tokyo and elsewhere.

At check-in, we will ask each participant to choose which of the 17 SDGs they are most interested in, and this will be displayed on their name tag. Attendees will then be directed to the rooftop lounge (weather permitting), where they can mingle with change-makers from all walks of life (in Japanese and English). There will also be some light entertainment (e.g. SDG quiz!).

We believe everyone has the power to create positive impact. All it takes is one person, sharing their idea, and meeting like-minded people who want to support it to make big things happen. Come join us for a relaxed and informal evening of connecting with purpose on 16th October!
