Announcing:

Details at our kickoff meeting on March 1st.

TRANSFORMATION DAYTON: FOCUS, ENGAGE, INSPIRE

During September to November 2017, the Peace Dayton Collaborative Group will produce
a multi-page “2017 Report to the Community” based on Regional progress
toward the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

100 Local Organizations

This year, we will turn participation into positive action to ensure a better future for our children.
We will also be contributing to the year 2030 Global Goal of a better future for our world.

The U.N. 17 Sustainable Development Goals are shown in the graphic below.
Each goal is important. Each organization in our Collaborative already has
a particular focus and is working hard on one or more of the Goals.
Combined — through unity — our group has huge peace-building potential.

How TRANSFORMATION DAYTON works:

1. Focus: Choose one of the 17 Sustainable Goals

2. Engage: Develop an event/program of action for September

3. Inspire: Tell the community your peace-building story

In November of each year until 2030, we will produce the results of our combined efforts in a Report to the Community. Your organization’s work is already powerful. Imagine the increased impact and outreach of this unified approach!
