Open Diplomacy’s Sustainable Development Meetings

The objectives set by the Open Diplomacy Institute were designed to ‘consolidate an ecosystem of partners’ from 27 September to 14 October 2021. The event brought together all the protagonists driving the transition, gathering thoughts from local, national and international figures, thinking about the Sustainable Development Goals and developing them in order to mobilise the general public right across France and give the event maximum visibility so as to widely engage the citizens.
