Misum welcomes you to a Kapuscinski Development Lecture with Jan Eliasson, former Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations and former Foreign Minister of Sweden. Mr Eliasson believes that peace, justice and strong institutions (goal 16) will help the world to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A panel will discuss Sweden's role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: Ardalan Shekarabi, Swedish Minister for Public Administration; Parul Sharma, Chairperson Delegation for the implementation of Agenda 2030; Tina Sendlhofer, PhD candidate at SSE Misum; and Björn Stigson, chairman of SSE Misum Board and former President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. A Kapuscinski Development Lecture is one of a series of high-level talks offering students in the EU the opportunity to learn about and discuss development issues such as climate change, human rights, aid effectiveness, Europe-Africa relations and the Sustainable Development Goals. It´s named after the Polish reporter and writer Ryszard Kapuscinski. The lectures are livestreamed at http://www.kapuscinskilectures.eu and the hashtag is #KAPTalks. The project is a joint initiative of the European Commission, the United Nations Development Programme and Misum at the Stockholm School of Economics. The project is funded by the European Commission. On January 1 2016, the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new goals that are universally applicable, countries will mobilize efforts to end poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change. These goals spell out the challenges we must meet to ensure the sustainability of our planet, and to ensure prosperity and equity for all. To solve the global challenges of today we need to think of the world as one system. Jan Eliasson will discuss how the development goals are mutually reinforcing, interdependent and universally applicable.
