ABOUT THE SUMMIT
Great aspirations deserve great attention. Especially if what’s at stake is no less than the future of our planet. Bearing that in mind, the Association of Social Responsibility, the largest initiative for corporate social responsibility and the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Czechia, in association with DVTV.cz are holding the 2022 Global Goals Summit.
You will meet inspiring personalities from the world of business, politics, the nonprofit sector, and public administration. You will discover innovative approaches, see examples of good practices, and individuals who transform the world into a better place will speak about their experience with contributing to the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Perhaps you are one of them. Perhaps you are still searching for your place in the world of sustainability. Either way, you are welcome, as is everyone who takes sustainability with the utmost seriousness.
The Global Goals Summit will be held in the National Museum in Prague, Czech Republic on October 13, 2022. The museum is a gorgeous venue that breathes ancient history. Likewise, the times gone by provide the symbol of this year’s summit – Plateosaurus, the most common European dinosaur in ancient times. The summit will present a model Pla(s)teosaurus made from recycled plastic by 3D printers from various part of Czechia. More information.
Why Pla(s)teosaurus? Because he knows what could happen and has a message for us:
DON’T CHOOSE EXTINCTION!!!
The 2022 Global Goals Summit is part of the Sixth Season of the SDG Awards, a prestigious event during which awards are bestowed for fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Czechia.

SUSTAINABLE IN EVERY RESPECT
The Global Goals Summit aims to leave a large footprint in regard to offering ideas and inspiration, but have as little environmental impact as possible.
The Global Goals Summit is a carbon-neutral event. The summit's carbon footprint is measured during the preparations. In partnership with Plant-for-the-Planet, we compensate the measured values by planting trees on the Yacatán Peninsula in Mexico.
Rohlík.cz will select local raw materials with the lowest possible ecological footprint and save others from expiration. The masters of the White Circus kitchen under the leadership of chef Vladimír Čech will prepare vegetarian and vegan delicacies from them according to the principles of zero waste.
Every person attending the Global Goals Summit will receive an SDGs cup made from recycled coffee dregs. Thanks to the cup, you will be able to enjoy the taste of coffee and other drinks during the event, and for a long time to come – always in a sustainable fashion.
Coming to the Global Goals Summit using a sustainable means of transport is easy. The National Museum is a step away from the Metro, the Central Station, and a streetcar stop. Likewise, you can use a (shared) bicycle, scooter, or come on foot.
The National Museum is a symbol of history, the home of unique collections and extinct species. The Global Goals Summit will be held in this exceptional building to remind us of the thin line between life and the prospect of extinction.
