SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals


The final Sustainable Development Goal aims to revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development by bringing governments, civil society, scientists, academia and the private sector together to achieve the SDGs. The UN recognizes that multi-stakeholder partnerships will be crucial to leverage the inter-linkages between the SDGs to enhance their effectiveness and impact. PCGS relies on building partnerships at the local, national, and global levels to incorporate diverse perspectives and resources to solve sustainability challenges. Partnering with SDG-minded organizations and institutions solidifies our commitment to the SDGs and ensures sustainable development in our communities and around the world.
