A central theme of the expert breakfast is to question how sustainable innovations by international actors promote the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other global governance fields. A consideration and inventory of the implementation of sustainable development as a national strategy in Germany in an international comparison makes this topic particularly relevant and urgent for the success of science diplomacy at the United Nations and beyond.

This event will be of great value to those working on all questions of multilateralism as well as science diplomacy, including – but not limited to – researchers with a focus on International Organizations, UN staff and civil servants, diplomats, members from NGOs, graduate students as well as the wider public.
