The Time Capsule: Together towards a better Future!

After the ‘Millennium Municipality’ campaign, VNG International has now started a follow up campaign: The Global Goals Municipality Campaign! It revolves around the newly adopted United Nations’ Global Goals for Sustainable Development, which have come to replace the Millennium development Goals that expired at the end of last year.

The 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development should be achieved by 2030, in every country and for all people in the world! Together with all municipalities in the Netherlands, VNGI aims to raise awareness of the Global Goals. In addition, VNG International will dedicate special time and attention to inspiring and mobilizing Dutch municipalities to contribute to the achievement of the Global Goals.

What will the world look like in the year 2030?

We are starting to think about answers to this question as the Global Goals for Sustainable Development are brought into effect at the start of the year.

2030Embark on our journey towards 2030!

To get off with a flying start of our campaign, VNG International introduced a “Time capsule” which travels across the country to engage municipalities in the journey towards 2030. We would like to invite mayors and aldermen to formulate their personal wish or dream for the year 2030 in relation to the Global Goals. The first personal wishes have already been added to the Time Capsule.

Would you like to participate? Do not miss out on this opportunity and join!
