Training course to prepare public administrations for the implementation of strategic plans on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

From 2015 to the present, there have been several information, communication and training interventions related to the 17 goals and 169 targets, achieving an important result in terms of awareness of the 2030 Agenda. In the light of the European Commission’s new guidelines and a profound change of political paradigm, a rethinking of training courses on the 2030 Agenda is necessary. These courses should not only illustrate the goals, but should develop new Skill Ecosystems within which different actors collaborate at policy, programme and project levels. It is no longer enough to know the AGENDA and define actions to achieve it; today, public bodies and institutions, but also civil, cultural and economic society organisations, must be able to
Integrate knowledge about European policies with the skills to approach European funding programmes and with strategic planning, European and international design skills;

Rethink and redefine agenda evaluation systems, adopting multidimensional indicator systems capable of capturing impacts on the agenda, European policies, and national and regional strategies;
redesign local policies aligned with national strategic policies and with European ones around which specific projects consistent with the SDGs and European policies can be promoted. Training courses on the 2030 Agenda must therefore be set in an articulated scenario that includes global goals global objectives, European policies and programmes.

The Commission’s objectives for the 2021-2027 programming were defined in coherence with the SDGs:
A European Green Deal
An economy at the service of people
A Europe ready for the digital age Promoting our European way of life
A stronger Europe in the world
A new impetus for European democracy
