You are cordially invited to the event SDGs in Contemporary Perspective & Legal Transition – Virtual Talk & Book Launch on 15 December 2021 at 6 pm CET to participate in the discussion on the SDGs application in law and get insights on the first comprehensive legal commentary on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

This talk is hosted by C-EENRG Fellow Prof. Dr. Winfried Huck, the author of Sustainable Development Goals, An Article-by-Article Commentary, and the Brunswick European Law School (BELS). We are also pleased that Prof. Dr. Paolo D. Farah and Deputy Dean Dr Jason Haynes will be participating in this event as expert speakers and discussants.

The talk will highlight the legal interpretation of the Global Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which since their adoption in 2015 guide and trigger the far-reaching transformation of the global community to establish the sustainable global partnership of people, animals and the environment.

The legal interpretation of the SDGs is indispensable in order to create the most far-reaching effect and give certainty to everyone implementing the SDGs. The discussion focuses on this legal transitioning of the SDGs and, with the insights into the legal commentary, seeks to provide a manageable form for legal practitioners, policy-makers and practitioners as well. With its clear focus on legally significant interrelationships at the horizontal, vertical and transnational levels of law, this unique book offers an important contribution to understanding the global and systematic implementation of each of the UN SDGs.

We welcome all interested parties, academics, policy-makers, professional, civil society and business leaders, the public, and students from the first steps of their studies on.

Should you be interested, you are kindly asked to register and share the invitation enclosed with your network and students who might wish to participate.
