Earlier this year, the SDG 8 Initiative introduced thematic reviews and discussion papers on the targets of Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG 8).

In a series of three workshops in June (June 8th, 17th, and 22nd), the thematic groups will present drafts of their SDG 8 discussion papers and suggest areas that are relevant for the implementation of each target. There will be time for discussion and questions, involving all interested researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Chalmers, and the associated "satellite" universities in Chile, Colombia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and Vietnam.

Third webinar 22 June 13.00-16.00
