UN SDGs Symposium: Exploring the DiverCity of Athens

Following the representation of The American College of Greece (ACG) in the UN Millennium Fellowship Program 2020 by eleven Deree students, this three-day online Symposium is organized by the Fellows and the ACG Office of Public Affairs, as part of the cohort’s collective project. The symposium aims at increasing awareness about the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and furthering their social impact on campus.

The Symposium will delve into four of the 17 Goals: SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities, SGD 5 – Gender Equality, SDG 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities, and SDG 12 – Sustainable Consumption and Production, through panel discussions with notable academics and experts in their respective fields, who will present hands-on solutions.

An essential part of the sustainability efforts of ACG, the event will welcome as guest speakers representatives of local authorities as well as NGO representatives and members of academia, who will engage in panel discussions and interactive sessions with participants. The event targets a wide audience of undergraduate and graduates students as well as representatives from sustainability-related NGOs, academia, professionals, and any person with an interest in the advancement of SDGs and, specifically, in sustainable cities, sustainable consumption, equality, diversity, and sustainable fashion.

The Symposium is held under the auspices of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI), the Millennium Campus Network (MCN), and the Millennium Fellowship Program and is supported by the Deree Psychology Society, the Deree Sociology Society, and the Deree International Honors Program Society.
