About the event:
Colombia has set a roadmap to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and multiple efforts have been made both in the public and private sector towards achieving its milestones. Although there is still much to be done, numerous grass-roots organizations, public and private companies, and the government in Colombia are actively responding to the challenges posed by the SDGs. The 2019 Sixth Colombian Conference mission is to raise awareness, and to help augment these initiatives. The conference will provide an academic setting to present recommendations and foster an open, critical, and interdisciplinary dialogue among stakeholders, scholars, students, and the general public.

A full day of presentations will be held at Harvard University on Saturday, April 6th, including a keynote address at 8:30 a.m. by former Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos, who was awarded the Great Negotiator Award by PON in 2017. Also on Saturday, at 2 p.m., there will be a panel presentation on “The life and work of human rights defenders.”
