A Call to Action – for people, planet and prosperity!
Time: 6th of October 2015, 9am – 5pm
Venue: Gribskov Culture Hall – Denmark
FROM VISION TO REALITY
2015 represents a historic and unprecedented opportunity. For the first time in the history of mankind every country in the world has agreed to adopt a set of global goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. The 17 goals are part of a new sustainable development agenda and each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
To succeed in their implementation the SDGs need more than just a formal commitment of governments to this essentially voluntary agenda. They need to be commonly known, widely understood and integrated into the educational programs and action agendas of nearly every major organization and institution on the planet. And we have to achieve them by 2030!
You are hereby invited to participate in the creation of a new global initiative. Its purpose is to: 1) Raise awareness about the 17 Goals 2) Mobilize people to spread the word 3) Empower them with tools for taking action
Learn, Share, Act!
We will provide clear, action oriented information and tools, which make it easy for people and organizations of all kinds to become actively engaged.

Alan Atkisson spent his 20s in New York playing music professionally. In the evening show he presents some of the “greatest hits” from his collection of sustainability-related songs, weaved together with the best bits from his introductory lectures, combined with personal stories about events and people who have inspired him over the years.
The Danish lead guitarist Jacob Moth and his World Rock Orchestra Lila Rose will give us a taste of music from their album Odyssey – part 1, and the next generation will be represented by the local high-school band ”Anarkistisk Vandmelon”, who will share a couple of their most popular hits – including ”Treasure your Trash” from the campaign ”Clean Out Loud” (See image below)
