Episode 9: Conversation - Nikhil Seth on how everyone can relate to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals

August 16, 2019

In this episode, part of our Conversation series, Director of the UN Library Geneva, Francesco Pisano, speaks with Nikhil Seth, Assistant Secretary-General at the United Nations and the Executive Director of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), about his thoughts on the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Nikhil Seth shares about his role in helping to develop and support the SDGs, and why the multilateral and integrated nature of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs give them greater strength and capacity as an "action agenda" for the UN Charter. He also stresses the importance of partnerships across sectors to achieve the Goals, and why everyone can define and seize their own personal Agenda 2030.
