UCLG Regions supports the Provincial Council of Guipúzcoa in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda

5 November 2018

On the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, the Provincial Council of Guipúzcoa held a workshop in San Sebastian with more than 40 representatives and volunteers from associations throughout the province, in order to share its strategy to align its public policies with the 2030 Agenda, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Provincial Council is carrying out an analysis of the Strategic Management Plan under the perspective of the SDGs, associating its strategic objectives with those established by the global agendas.

This way, the Provincial Council prioritizes the task of framing the SDGs in the different actions and projects carried out in its departments, starting with the project “Building the future” (in Basque, Etorkizuna Eraikiz), and those carried out by the Department of Governance and Communication with Society. The document that collects this work has been shared with the associations during the meeting.

Guipúzcoa is committed to the new global agenda, which seeks to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality, protect the planet and ensure the prosperity of all people. Achieving this is everybody’s task and the Provincial Council wants to take an active role, in collaboration with the citizens and with the social and economic agents of the territory who work day by day to make these priorities a reality“, said the Member of the Parliament for Governance and Communication, Imanol Lasa, at the workshop.
