2 Day Summit Event: Collaboration for Systemic Change


Collaborating, connecting, and working together has never been more important than right now. SDG Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals, is our collective way forward. Join us for the next part in the 2020-2021 Aotearoa/New Zealand SDG Summit Series and see how by working together, we can create the world we want, and the world that we need.

You're invited to participate at a two-day Summit event, focused on connecting, learning, collaborating, and taking real action on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Held over two consecutive days (September 2 – 3) in Ōtautahi Christchurch, the 2021 SDG Summit is far from your ‘usual’ conference event. 


WHEN: Thursday 2 September - Friday 3 September

MAIN VENUE: University of Canterbury, Ōtautahi Christchurch (in-person)

September 2 (Day One): You can expect a mixture of speakers and interactive participant-led sessions including but not limited to: think workshops, world cafe, fish bowl, kōrerorero, creative stations, activations and small group discussions, all focused around collaborating for the SDGs.

This first day will be followed by a community-style feast in the City Centre. This is also open to the public to attend.

September 3 (Day Two): In the morning, you have the opportunity to see examples of the SDGs in action around the Waitaha Canterbury region. This action-filled day will start at University of Canterbury, and include three consecutive field trips for you to choose from:

  • Christchurch City Centre

  • Banks Peninsula/Lyttelton

  • Lincoln, Selwyn District


You will re-group at the end of the field trip experience back at the University of Canterbury campus for some more participant-led sessions, collaborative action planning, SDG Alliance update and SDG declaration process.


Purchase your in-person Summit ticket(s), and get free access to upcoming Online Hui#3: Working Together for Change on Thursday 24 June!
