UN SDG wheel

September 2023

As Gail Whiteman, Professor at Lancaster University, indicated during Rotterdam Capital Days on 19-September 2019, “UN Sustainable Development Goals is all about understanding the earth’s system and setting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the earth”. An astonishing 90 countries have already aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, all working towards achieving these goals by 2030. 


The question we want to ask this month is : where do we stand today? And: can we as a community deliver on getting us where we need to be in 2030?  This month Venture Café Rotterdam will offer a platform to showcase what the Netherlands and Rotterdam have to offer to solve global challenges and we will showcase  what is happening within our network to contribute to the SDGs! We won’t go at this alone; all of the sister Venture Cafés worldwide will work together to create an even larger community for change.

This month also another edition of Upstream Festival will take place, from 20-24 September. A multiple day event focused on growing and scaling your business

Venture Café Rotterdam is currently on pause. We'll be back soon!
