Main issues must be clearly stated

The Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces(FEMP) launched a campaign in the last week of September to raise awareness of the benefits of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda in local policies.

Under the slogan '2030 Is Now Is Now', the campaign showcases eight success stories in videos that capture their characteristics and progress.



Main facts/points outlined in body of text

  • Through the '2030 Is Now Is Now' campaign, the FEMP is promoting the implementation of the SDGs in Spain's municipalities, provincial councils, councils and island councils. This initiative is embodied in the work of the Network of Local Entities for the 2030 Agenda, which integrates representatives of local governments committed to the SDGs in a cross-cutting manner in their local and provincial public policies.
  • The SDG-related projects that are part of the first sample of good practices are those of the municipalities of Andújar (Jaén), Fuenlabrada (Madrid), Hernán-Pérez (Cáceres), Onda (Castellón), Santa Coloma de Gramenet (Barcelona) and La Torre del Valle (Zamora), as well as those of the Cabildo de El Hierro and the Diputación de Córdoba.
  • These initiatives cover a wide range of priorities for the improvement of the territory from a perspective focused on the construction of sustainable municipalities and societies. Some of the projects included in this first catalog of success stories are environmental sustainability, citizen participation, the recovery of natural spaces and the enhancement of local heritage and culture.
  • With the aim of disseminating these projects and informing other local corporations of the benefits of including this vision in their management policies, an explanatory video has been created for each of them. The multimedia material, available at this link, shows the projects and their progress, as well as testimonials from different agents involved in their implementation and development.
