18-25 September 2020. Flanders (Belgium)
On 25 September 2020, the 2030 Agenda celebrates its fifth anniversary. VVSG and its members celebrate this during the Week of the Sustainable Municipality, from 18 to 25 September. Participating municipalities display the SDG flag at the town hall and put their ‘Sustainable Heroes’ in the spotlight.
In 2018, 90 municipalities participated, in 2019 95. Annually between 650 and 750 heroes were selected.
The focus this year is on ‘corona heroes’. The COVID19 epidemic reminds us of the importance of sustainability and global connectedness and reveals the links between the social, ecological and economic dimensions of sustainability.
