About The Conclave


At Sannam S4, we believe that the 17th SDG, namely ‘Partnerships for the Goals’ is the critical backbone for achieving the SDGs by 2030. Enhanced co-operation, especially within multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilise and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources are needed to support the achievement of the SDGs in all countries. Given our close working relationship with international corporates, not-for-profits, schools and universities over the last decade, we recognise that they can serve as critical agents to achieve certain SDGs, especially within India.

Pre-COVID, the world recognised that some progress on the SDGs was being made, albeit slowly and incrementally. However, with the onset and acceleration of the pandemic in developing nations such as
India, there is a possibility that we will see reversal of our collective progress and set the world 10 years further back from achieving the goals. With all this, one thing has become more evident than ever before: The SDGs are needed to guide a coordinated, equitable and sustainable recovery for our planet.

The objectives of the conference are three-fold


  1. The key objective of the SDG Conclave is to engage the youth and inform them about the most pressing sustainability challenges, as they are the future custodians of our planet
  2. A collegial space where schools, universities, non-profits, community leaders, industry members and government can connect and flourish
  3. A platform for identifying and mobilizing CSR, grants, and other resources to launch new initiatives

Why Participate?

India is not on track to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Solving the country’s development issues requires more effective policies, additional and innovative forms of domestic and international financing, and multi-stakeholder participation in decision making. Through our conference we will share how Multi-Stakeholder Platforms (MSPs) can use their competitive advantage to turn challenges into opportunities and create win-win solutions that can help narrow supply and demand gaps.

We believe that it is important to highlight the innovation stories that demonstrate the importance of MSPs, the critical implementation role partners can play and the results to date. Country partners – governments, academia, businesses and civil society groups are the driving forces in achieving the SDGs. To that end, you will be able to meet the following types of organisations at the SDG conference:

Leading government decision makers (from both Central and State Government) who are creating effective policies and inclusive strategies for the SDGs

Donors and representatives from industry who are keen to utilise their CSR funds for activities that directly correspond to the SDGs

Form ties with local Indian universities and non-profits that are currently engaged in active projects and research pertaining to the SDGs
