Listen to Balaton Group members discuss key insights from the 2014 Balaton Group meeting on ‘How can sustainable development goals (SDG) advance sustainability’. This year’s meeting reviewed the SDG process and approach from the Balaton Group’s trademark systems perspective, asking tough questions about what has been achieved to date, what is the SDG’s relevance, and what it would take to ensure their ambition matches the scale of the global sustainability transition challenge faced by humanity.

Meeting right after the Balaton Group meeting, the panel discussion took place on September 16, 2014, at the Central European University, Budapest, Hungary. Panelists provided highlights of the meeting and their own perspectives, including insights from the Open Working Group process at the United Nations, the challenges SDGs represent for governance and the promise and potential of the regenerative economy.
