At this year’s Fall Academy, young policy makers developed skills to influence the political agenda associated with the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their respective home countries. The participants collaborated on different topics (e.g. gender equality, decent work for all, consumption, climate change) in order to share expertise and learn from one another’s experience. Based on this group work, individual policy papers were developed to help create a synergy between participants’ ongoing work for progressive political transformation and the implementation of the SDG agenda in each participant’s home country.
