More detailed information:
This basic webinar will show overlaps and links between human rights, the SDGs, and the UNGPs:
Learn how the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) provide a way for businesses to contribute to the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Find out how human rights are included in the SDGs and what that means for your business. Identify the first steps to keep an overview and develop a strategy for integrating human rights, SDGs and the Guiding Principles in your business operations.
Human rights are the basis for sustainable development and the driving force behind the Sustainable Development Goals: Over 90 per cent of the SDGs' goals and targets correspond to human rights obligations. As businesses contribute to the SDGs, they make progress on their human rights obligations – they are two sides of the same coin.
Tourism companies have small-scale value chains which come, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises with great responsibility on small shoulders. Even ten years after introducing the UNGPs and in the Decade of Action for the SDGs, many companies are still at the beginning - or in a jungle of possibilities in which it isn't easy to keep track.
We want to help you to get started.Mairead Keigher, Business and Human Rights professional at Shift, and Nia Klatte, Regional Sustainability Coordinator & Khiri Reach Executive Director at Khiri Travel, will share first-hand experiences and recommendations to take action.
This webinar is explicitly targeted at small- and medium-sized tour operators and is intended to:
- see a connection: Identify the tourism and human rights reference in each SDG
- prioritise: Define the most relevant SDGs for your company
- join forces: Use the potential in working together
