Day Zero – SDG Bergen 2022: “Leaving No Child and No Adolescent Behind”
9 February 2022 @ 13:30 - 15:00 CET
Day Zero is a free, all-digital day of events to kick off the SDG Conference Bergen. GRIP will host a session at Day Zero, in relation to the new book “Leaving No Child and No Adolescent Behind” edited by Sudeshna Chatterjee, Alberto Minujin and Katie Hodgkinson. The book shines a spotlight on the world’s most vulnerable children and adolescents, living in poverty and exclusion.
“Leaving No Child and No Adolescent Behind” draws on experiences from some 35 countries and provides in-depth analysis of rich empirical evidence while reflecting on the meaning of ‘inclusion’ for children and adolescents who are often left behind. It reminds us that SDG targets and goals cannot be met unless we focus attention on pockets of inequity and deprivation. The book also provides unique insights on how knowledge, information, data collection, measurement and monitoring make the realities of children’s and adolescents’ lives more visible.
This event will use the book as a springboard for discussion on new analyses and policies to fight poverty, exclusion, and violence against children to measure and track progress against SDG targets. The editors and some of the contributing authors will discuss key ideas and invite participants to share their experiences of strategies and innovations for implementing the SDGs.
This event is free and digital. You must sign up for Day Zero/the Bergen SDG conference to participate.
