Setting up a partnership initiative specifically designed to bring together organisations in the UK to work on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was the result of an event organised by Farooq Ullah of Stakeholder Forum and Dominic White for Beyond 2015 UK.
Following the event, a variety of stakeholders started to discuss opportunities and understand the context of the SDGs in the UK.
As the SDGs were being finalised in New York in September 2015, Stakeholder Forum, WWF-UK and Bioregional committed staff time to create a new initiative which has now become UKSSD.
Their support was quickly followed by Neighbourly and UN Global Compact UK, which joined as the first Partners. From then, our network has grown substantially to exceed 100 Partner organisations, with a wider network of over 1,000 organisations.
