Webinar – The Sustainable Development Goals in the UK: priorities, processes, participation

Graham Long from Newcastle University discusses the UK implementation process for the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the role of citizen participation. See Graham’s co-authored report on the 2030 Agenda here.

This webinar is the second in a series from the UK-wide Open Government Pioneers Project. For those who missed it, our first webinar is available here.

Graham Long is a Senior Lecturer in Politics at Newcastle University. He has been researching the Sustainable Development Goals since 2013, looking at metrics, underpinning commitments and accompanying governance structures as well as the goals and targets themselves. From 2014-15 he worked to support NGO and academic involvement in negotiations to agree the goals, in UN and EU contexts. One of his current research projects explores the implications of the SDGs for the UK, mapping current UK data onto SDG targets to generate a picture of their applicability and relevance to the UK.
