The Sustainable Development Goals Meetup is a monthly meetup powered by SDG House Residents Impact Hub Amsterdam and C-Change.

SDG Meetup provides a continuous engagement opportunity to deepen collective knowledge and practice to accelerate solutions per SDG. It is an accessible platform to learn about and work on SDGs in an entrepreneurial way while being a platform for collaboration amongst established organisations, institutions, social entrepreneurs, SMEs, academics and independent professionals.

Each edition focuses on one selected SDG (i.e. gender equality, climate change). It is an evening event with a participatory nature to generate new learning, connections, collaborations and action! At each event we invite knowledge partners, entrepreneurs, innovators and expert facilitators to co-create this inspiring environment for us.

The learnings of each meetup is also recorded and shared with a larger public through a podcast series.

The meetups takes place at Impact Hub Amsterdam located in the SDG House (KIT building) in Amsterdam-Oost. SDG House, as a community, houses over 1000+ professionals and 50+ organisations working on or with the SDGs.
