Date: May 5

Time: 9 AM EST (4pm EAT)

 

Webinar Description

In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development . All of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets seek to realize the human rights of all. A key principle of the SDGs is the promise to “leave no one behind”, recognizing that these targets can only be met when the needs of all populations are adequately addressed; this includes vulnerable and marginalized populations. As such, this principle is particularly relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) persons who are systematically excluded or discriminated against in society.

This webinar will bring diverse perspectives from civil society organizations (CSOs), United Nations Agencies, and Member States. The discussion will center around the importance of addressing LGBTI issues internationally as part of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
