17 Rooms: Forging Next Steps Into the SDG Second Half 2023 Flagship Synthesis Report

In 2015, world leaders agreed on a plan to build a fairer, greener, more equitable world by 2030. This amounted to the creation of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). We are now entering the second half the SDG timeline with the added impacts of Covid-19, global conflict, and a worsening climate crisis.

The 17 Rooms initiative continues to build a platform and approaches to promote action, insight, and community for sustainable development outcomes. In the 2023 annual 17 Rooms flagship, 17 highly curated working groups, one per SDG, came together to craft new forms of actionable, collaborative leadership over a 12-to-18-month horizon. Their efforts tackled common priorities like the multi-dimensional challenge of climate change, the deployment of frontier technologies, elevating local approaches to global issues, and reframing debates that are stuck in outdated narratives.
