Discussing the SDGS-G20 Relationship at a Joint Workshop with the University of Toronto
The major theme of the workshop was the relationship between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the G20. Participants exchanged opinions on three key points—(1) how has the G20 summit functioned to promote the SDGs and create a sustainable world, (2) what can be done at the Osaka summit to achieve the SDGs, and how has the G20 worked together with the UN, and (3) how can the partnership between the G20 and the UN be strengthened after the Osaka summit—among other topics. There were more than a hundred participants, mainly students, who enthusiastically listened to the talks given by researchers and experts in foreign affairs and diplomacy. The University of Toronto and KGU have a long history of friendship that dates back almost 130 years. This workshop came about through a call from Professor John Kirton, founder of the G20 research group at the University of Toronto, and who also previously served at KGU as a visiting researcher.
