The Foundations Platform F20 has appointed Stephan Contius as its Special Advisor on SDGs. The 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals agreed in 2015 by the United Nations represent the world‘s most influential sustainability framework. Mr. Contius was closely involved in negotiating the SDGs as Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda and Head of the Division for UN and Developing Countries and Emerging Economies at the German Environment Ministry. The F20 is delighted to welcome Stephan Contius and to build on his experience in international relations and diplomacy.
Successfully shaping the transformation process to the post-fossil era requires effective international alliances for rapid and unprecedented change. Foundations and philanthropic organisations are in an excellent position to foster and encourage concrete action. As increased social inequality puts progressive policies in peril, we should work for a fair and fast transition.
