Plan Vivo Stakeholder Meeting 2015
The biennial Plan Vivo Stakeholder Meeting will take place on September 28-29, 2015 in Sigtuna, Sweden. This is a great opportunity to get to know the work of the Foundation and its partners. Part of the meeting's discussions will focus on how the Plan Vivo system supports the principles of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), expected to be announced at Climate Week NYC 2015. We are looking forward to meeting many of our project partners and partner organisations and to discussing the state and future of the Plan Vivo system. If you have any questions regarding the meeting or you would like to attend the public day on Tuesday, 29th of September, please contact us.
