Ingeborg and Louis wrote this guest article for IISD , following discussions at e.g. the HLPF. We argue that while the SDGs require breaking down “mental silos” to allow for change, the common call to break down institutional silos poses risks. Institutions provide the necessary structure, reliability, transparency and communication points. Instead of breaking them down, we need to teach silos to dance.
Ingeborg presented/presents different aspects of the SDGs at three conferences in, respectively, Berlin (07/06, ESDN), Helsinki (21/06, SITRA) and Rome (23/06).
Ingeborg participated in the Sustainable Development Transition Forum 2015 of the UN Office for Sustainable Development in Incheon, Republic of Korea, 17-19 November 2015.
