On 25 September 2015, the United Nations will launch its post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals agenda, which aims to achieve three targets: ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change.
Project Everyone, whose founders include Standard Chartered, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Unilever, strives to ensure that every person on earth is aware of these new global sustainable development goals. It aims to engage 7 billion people in the UN Development Goals in 7 days. 
Join the Chamber's CSR Forum for a briefing by experts from Standard Chartered and UNDP at which Project Everyone will be explained and best practice discussed. Take the chance to learn what your company could do to help realise the global goals for sustainable development. Members and non-members are welcome.
