The awareness campaigns of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are of extreme importance for awareness of the role that all actors have in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ensuring that their interests, aspirations and needs are included in the strategies for implementing the SDGs. This helps strengthen the universal character of the 2030 Agenda, as well as the commitment of citizens to the SDGs.

The experiences of different governments and local actors have demonstrated the potential of these actions to educate and involve citizens towards the effective implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the SDGs in the territories. Awareness represents the first step in starting to locate the SDGs.

An excellent example is the campaign being carried out by the NGO Amycos, in collaboration with the City of Burgos, to raise awareness among the people of Burgos to get involved in locating the SDGs in the province.

During the first quarter of 2018, the 17 SDGs will be exhibited in advertising urban furniture and buses in Burgos, advertising spaces provided free of charge by the Diputación, the Junta de Castilla y León and the social work of La Caixa and Fundación Caja de Burgos . Amycos believes that citizen empowerment is fundamental and that it will help fulfill the 2030 Agenda in the territory.

In addition to the promotion of the SDGs, Amycos will organize educational workshops in different schools and civic centers and distribute promotional material with the objective of setting the SDGs in the collective imagination of Burgos. These actions are in addition to others that Amycos has made in the same line since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda. As, for example, an itinerant exhibition that continues to visit educational centers and cultural spaces in the region.

More details and information about the mentioned actions can be found in the news published by El Correo de Burgos and on the website of Amycos .
