Around the world, Flemish local authorities are seen as pioneers when it comes to the localization of the 2030 Agenda. Nonetheless, ‘The sustainable what?’ is still the first reaction of many town councils and citizens when the SDGs are mentioned. The association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG) therefore continues supporting awareness raising initiatives on the SDGs. In this second edition of the publication ‘SDGs in your municipality: 50 practical awareness raising examples’ VVSG assembled 50 new national and international examples concerning the introduction of the SDGs to a wider audience both within the municipal organisation, in external communication, and at events. From SDG street art to SDG radio programmes and collaboration with local sustainable heroes: this portfolio of activities to raise awareness about the SDGs features a great range of campaigns, activities, and materials. VVSG also suggests a number of examples to increase awareness about the SDGs through policy planning and monitoring.
