Minister Ana Abrunhosa present at the ODSlocal'22 conference in Quinta do Lago

Awards will distinguish three projects from civil society organizations, as well as good municipal practices

Ana Abrunhosa, Minister of Territorial Cohesion, will be present at the conference and award ceremony of the ODSLocal awards, initiatives promoted by the Municipal Platform for Sustainable Development Goals (ODSlocal) and Câmara de Loulé, to take place on the 7th of December, from 14 pm, at the Wyndham Grand Hotel, in Quinta do Lago.

During the conference, which has the theme “Pathways, Dynamics, Futures”, the ODSlocal Awards will be awarded, which distinguish three projects of civil society organizations mapped in the ODSlocal portal, with a relevant impact on advancing the 2030 Agenda, strongly inspiring and with a high potential for replicability.

Municipal Good Practices will also be distinguished and ODSlocal Seals delivered to the most outstanding municipalities in this field.

This initiative aims to promote good practices and sustainability, distinguishing municipalities and other relevant entities for their contribution, at the local level, to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) proposed by the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
