      SDG Meetup #8 | Decent Work & Economic Growth

      In May, we'll be focusing on SDG 8: Decent Work & Economic Growth. As the global economy continues to recover from the 2008 economic crisis and global recession, we are seeing slower growth, widening inequalities, and not enough jobs to keep up with a growing labour force. That's why SDG 8 promotes sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. | CONTRIBUTORS Unicef Nederland | Caroline Bomers, Business Connector for the Amsterdam region, will talk about the organisation's new project for SMEs, #UNICEFBusinessBuddies. Want to know how you can make an impact as an entrepreneur on SDG 8 together with UNICEF? Learn more about the theme Youth Empowerment, Generation Unlimited (the UN Youth 2030 Strategy to get every young person in a decent job and education) and UNICEF projects related to SDG 8, including Leaders of the Future (Jordan) and Techno Girls (South Africa). | PROGRAM 19:00 Entrance (grab a drink)19:30 – 21:30 Event (learn-innovate-participate)21:30 – 22:00 Networking Drinks22:00 End | TICKETS Regular ticket: €9,50 – Includes a free drinkImpact Hub member ticket: FreeSDG House resident ticket: Free | WHAT IS SDG MEETUP?
