Voluntary Local Reviews (VLR), a regional parallel to the Voluntary National Review (VNR), are an emerging process by which sub-national governments can report on their progress on Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Like the VNR, the goal of the VLR is to share strategies, successes and failures to assist other communities in their pursuit of the SDGs. Working with partners, WGSI is beginning a pilot project that supports Canadian communities in piloting VLRs that use localized indicators.
Presentation of the Equinox Communiqué
Born from a unique, international energy summit of scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and future leaders from around the world, the Equinox Communiqué offers visionary proposals for transformative action on reducing the electricity-related emissions that drive climate change. Through a series of mini presentations, Summit participants discuss the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 and explain the six main recommendations outlined in the Equinox Communiqué. These speakers lay the groundwork for a year-long global impact phase, including the release of the detailed and transformative Equinox Blueprint: Energy 2030.
