Flemish cities & municipalities are showing the way
Flemish cities and municipalities are pioneers in translating the SDGs locally. In doing so, they not only focus on the 17 thematic domains, but also take the SDGs on board as a stepping stone for coherent sustainable local policies and use the 2030 Agenda as a structural framework for policy planning.
The Association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG) made 3 practical videos explaining the SDG trajectory of some inspiring local governments. Mayors, policy officers and thematic experts from the municipalities involved explain why and how they got started with the SDG framework, and what impact this had on the municipal organisation and policy.
Watch the videos on the SDG trajectory of the cities of Deinze and Harelbeke, and the municipality of Edegem in Dutch, English or French.
More videos will be released in 2023.
