Sustainable Development Goals discussed on the Impact Journalism Day event of Impact Hub IstanbulJul 1, 2018
Impact Journalism Day marked by Impact Hub and communications platform Sparknews jointly in various countries was held this year for the first time in Turkey.
Sustainability was discussed with the representatives from development-oriented organisations in a panel moderated by Mr. Faik Uyanık, UNDP’s Communications Officer, where successful social entrepreneurs such as Fazla Gıda (More Food), Önemsiyoruz (We Care), Reflect and Minorpreneurs working on aims in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals shared their stories.
Mr. Semih Boyacı, a founding partner of Impact Hub, drew attention to the institutionalised companies which focused on the works done, current work and potential future work for Sustainable Development Goals, and said: “Today, it is not enough for organisations to emphasise “sustainability” alone in their work. It is necessary to augment works based on multi-stakeholder cooperation models to achieve the goals.”
The media took great interest in the Impact Journalism Day in Istanbul supported by the most prestigious 50 media organisations to publicise every year the stories of people who worked to make the world more liveable.
