On the first day of the UOG Conference for Island Sustainability, the Guam Green Growth Initiative launched two programs.
One is the G3 dashboard, which is an online open data platform to track the island’s progress toward achieving the UN sustainability goals.
The other is the G3 commitment program, which allows businesses and organizations to participate and be recognized for their efforts in promoting the UN sustainability goals, which include quality education, water and sanitation, decent work, ending hunger and poverty, and climate action, among others.
G3 rolled out the first two badges for April, which are ending poverty and ending hunger. And at the virtual event, commitment badges were presented to the village mayors for their efforts in ending poverty and hunger.
They were also recognized for representing their villages as early adopters of the program despite the challenges of the pandemic.
The 2021 UOG Conference on Island Sustainability is taking place as a virtual event from April 6 to April 9.
With “Islands Are Rising” as its theme, the 12th annual conference features island communities rising up to achieve a sustainable global future.
More than 2,000 individuals representing more than 80 countries, states, and territories participated in last year’s conference, which was also held virtually.
