One year after the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement was adopted, actors in different sectors are processing how these new agendas affect their operations and how they best can contribute to their fulfilment.

A challenge in national and global implementation processes is to develop holistic strategies which integrate the 17 SDGs. This workshop will, via national and international case studies, illustrate how the landscape perspective can contribute to an integrated implementation of SDGs in practice.

Workshop program (draft):

• Key note presentations by Ingrid Petersson Director General of Formas and representative of the Swedish Agenda 2030 delegation and Mia Crawford, Deputy Director at Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation.

• Panel discussion with key-note speakers, representatives from the organizers and other actors involved in Sweden´s implementation of Agenda 2030, such as Sida.

• Case studies (national and international) to illustrate the possibilities to integrate SDGs in both policy and practice by applying a landscape perspective.

• Interactive session - exchange of participants perspectives, actions and visions for Agenda 2030 implementation.

Besides providing ample time for interactions the workshop aim to identify opportunities for continued dialogue and close with collaboration initiatives where the exchange can be carried on after the end of the event.
