# Goal Jam

Our focus in goal jam is to create together a global education platform focussed on taking local action on climate change. First we need to educate ourselves to change our global consciousness, and then we need to learn the art of the possible, so we can understand how to take effective action.

Education is at the heart of this change, but so is art and culture. Our goal is not simply to change minds, but to engage our souls through music, and art and story telling - not as entertainment but as a medium of change. Culture might be missing from the global goals, but we aim to fix that.

# History

The UN discussions and negotiations identified the links between the post-2015 SDG process and the Financing for Development process that concluded in Addis Ababa in July 2015 and the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference Climate Change conference in Paris in December 2015 - wikipedia

In May 2015, a report concluded that only a very ambitious climate deal in Paris in 2015 could enable countries to reach the sustainable development goals and targets.

The report also states that tackling climate change will only be possible if the SDGs are met. Further, economic development and climate change are inextricably linked, particularly around poverty, gender equality, and energy. The UN encourages the public sector to take initiative in this effort to minimize environmental impact.

This renewed emphasis on climate change mitigation was made possible by the partial China–United States relations convergence that developed in 2015-2016, notably at the UN COP21 summit (Paris) and ensuing G20 conference (Hangzhou).

As one of the regions most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, the Asia-Pacific region needs more public-private partnerships (PPPs) to successfully implement its sustainable development initiatives.
