Liverpool is set to host the first United Nations Local 2030hub and is searching for Liverpool City Regions best businesses to participate.
Launched in July 2017, the UN Local2030 imitative was built around the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
- No Poverty
- Zero Hunger
- Good Health and well-being
- Quality Education
- Gender Equality
- Clean water and sanitation
- Affordable and clean energy
- Decent work and economic growth
- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
- Reduced inequalities
- Sustainable cities and communities
- Responsible consumption and production
- Climate action
- Life below water
- Life on land
- Peace, justice and strong institutions
- Partnership for the goals
The 2030hub is designed to support local entrepreneurs to make the city a better place to live and work.
They are currently seeking large or small businesses, from any sector, that display great entrepreneurship, innovation and create a social and environmental impact beyond job creation.
In 2015 the UK Government opted in to the UN’s 17 sustainable goals, alongside 192 other countries, which set out a vision to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change by 2030.
The UN has recognised that much of the work to achieve these goals must take place on a local level, so has launched Local2030 hubs. The hubs provide a space for communities – together with UN Partners – to identify their priorities on a local level and implement their innovative ideas.
To be considered as one of Liverpool’s best businesses, you will need to demonstrate the impact your company makes within the Liverpool City Region.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to the 2030hub’s first anniversary event later this month with the businesses selected as the ‘best of the best’ announced soon after. and those selected as amongst ‘the best of the best’ will be announced soon after.
