HubClub: International Development Mash-up

Join a truly special edition of the International Development Hub Club to get a firsthand taste of international cooperation.

Several Impact Hubs from Europe and Africa will host an International Development Mash-Up simultaneously to uncover the best practices related to SDG # 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

To start off, we will tune into one of the parallel events to have a joint discussion with our global community and inspiring international speakers on the best practices for SGD#17.
In the second part of the event, we will explore the local dimension of SGD#17: how we can underpin resources in Vienna to create economies of scale for international development?
Vienna is a regional capital for international development. We have the right organisations, companies and human capital to make considerable contributions towards the 2030 SDG agenda. The variety of this ecosystem makes Vienna unique and comparable to New York and Geneva.
What does it take for Vienna to live up to its potential as a powerhouse ecosystem for successful and innovative development solutions?
Sounds like an exciting challenge? Join us for a fun evening of inspiration, networking and partnership building.
