Partnerships and Cooperation
A stronger commitment to partnership and cooperation is needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. That effort will require coherent policies, an enabling environment for sustainable development at all levels and by all actors and a reinvigorated Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.
Promote Health & Well- Being
Events need to ensure the easy availability and accessibility of healthy foods as opposed to junk foods. To meet the Sustainable Development Goals health targets by 2030, progress must be accelerated, in particular in regions with the highest burden of disease.
Inclusive & Sustainable Cities and Homes
Governments need to create legitimate legislation to ensure less air pollution in cities, create safer streets and basic services in cities, ie, public transport. Better urban planning and management are needed to make the world’s urban spaces more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Combat Climate Change
Governments need to collaborate with other countries to urgently push through climate change legislation. Monitoring our car use, our energy levels at our events and effectively lowering our carbon footprint as an industry.
