Recent Event: 2017 FES New York Summer Academy

June 19 – 23, 2017
Roger Smith Hotel

At FES New York’s 2017 Summer Academy, young leaders from across the globe explored the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a tool to further progressive, transformative politics in their respective home countries. During this week-long workshop, participants shared their experiences and expertise, collaborated on various tasks and activities related to some of the Agenda’s key themes (e.g. climate change, decent work, sustainable consumption, etc.), and developed skills to influence their countries’ political agenda toward the implementation and follow-up of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the end of the Academy, all participants were asked to develop individual policy papers to help create synergies between their ongoing work for political transformation and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in their home countries.
