Peace Boat, the NGO Committee on Sustainable Development-NY, and SERVAS International will partner with Momentum Novum, to conduct this SDGs “Co-laboratory Workshop, ” which will explore innovative solutions to achieve a specific target of an SDG through three defining moments: identifying the issue; discussing opportunities to solve the issue; and creating a solution- empowering participants to work on innovative solutions to the SDGs in their own communities.
