Chat tables - UN SDG : Global Goals

Chat-tables in conjunction with our partner The UN Global Compact Network India (GCNI) will help meet the first objective of the RISE Summit – Cross-sectoral dialogue across the spectrum of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


The Summit is focused on the Collaboration and hence we will start the Inaugural session based on SDG 17 – Partnerships for the Goals – Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

Chat-tables will therefore be held in the reverse order from 16 onwards. Meet Experts and Practitioners at each table to discuss, learn and partner. Chat-tables will be organised 4 to each half day at the RISE Summit.
