PAST EVENT -‘Collaborating with Organisations to advance the UN SDGs’ Panel & Networking event

Event Date: 26th October 2022

Time: 17-30-19.30

Join us for a fantastic panel event bringing together representatives from academia, business, the UN World Tourism Organisation and Just a Drop – an NGO that has helped deliver sustainable water solutions to over 1.9 million people in 32 countries – to discuss how organisations can work together to progress sustainable tourism and delivery of the sustainable development goals. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more and put your questions to sector leaders.

The Oxford SDG Impact Lab offers graduate students the opportunity to apply their academic talents to real-world challenges, in partnership with businesses and other organisations. It is a ground-breaking initiative that delivers values-based leadership and employability skills training.

easyJet holidays are the Lab’s founding partner, a new and forward-thinking travel company that has taken on the mission of making sustainable travel accessible to everyone. By working with the Lab, easyJet holidays is seeking to be the industry leader in sustainable tourism that has a positive impact on the environment and local communities.

The 2022/23 easyJet holidays Sustainable Tourism Programme will focus on two complementary areas: Local Impact and Strategic Impact. Local: how can we address issues in specific Mediterranean tourism destinations from a bottom-up perspective? Strategic: how can we work with governments and the United Nations to shape industry-wide progress from a top-down perspective? The programme will involve a 6-month Fellowship starting in January 2023.

Interested in applying for a fellowship? Come along to hear more about the programme from our fantastic panel moderated by Professor Alexander Betts, Professor of Forced Migration & International Affairs, University of Oxford, Associate Head @oxsocsci and co-founder of the Oxford SDG Impact Lab in discussion with Matt Callaghan, Director of Customer and Operations, easyJet holidays; Clara van der Pol, Chief of Statistics, United Nations World Tourism Organisation, Fiona Jeffrey OBE from Her Majesty the Queen for services to travel and tourism and Founder of Just a Drop and Anjali Sarker Programme Manager at the Oxford Character Project.

Following the discussion and q and a, there will be a chance to meet the team, meet last year’s fellows and network over drinks.
