VVSG documents on the localisation of the SDGs are now available in English

28 March 2018

Together, with a diverse but highly motivated group of 20 Flemish municipalities, the Association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG) is going through an intensive 2-year long trajectory of in-depth experimenting, testing and exploring with methods for localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

VVSG main aim is to structurally integrate the SDGs into municipal policy making. Eyes are set on the municipal elections of October 2018. Tools are being developed so that the SDGs will be used as the framework on which the formulation of the new multi-annual strategic plan is based. These tools and recommendations will be disseminated to all Flemish local governments.

In the project, VVSG works on three tracks:

  1. Awareness-Raising: animation movie (also in French and Spanish), publication SDGs in your municipality: 50 practical awareness raising examples;
  2. Policy Making: basic tool, integrating the SDGs into the context analysis, VVSG declaration of commitment to SDGs (also in French & Spanish)
  3. Politicy Strategy: Recommendations to integrate the SDGs into local party manifestos


All documents can be downloaded in English from the following website.
