For the first time in the region, The Global Sustainability Network (GSN) is gathering in Tivat from 6-9 September, at the Hotel Regent Porto Montenegro to discuss human rights, modern-day slavery, human and organ trafficking, sustainable economic growth and sustainable tourism in the region, thus initiating the GSN Balkan chapter in Montenegro given the conducive, stable political and economic environment of the country and of the Montenegrin Government.
GSN – www.GSNgoal8.org – is a registered charity organization registered in the United Kingdom, and a worldwide growing network of more than 800 change-makers across 5+1 sectors: Faith, Government, Business, Media, NGO’s and Academia, committed to achieving the United Nations’s Sustainable Development Goal 8, on sustainable economic growth and decent work for all, with a special focus on Goal 8.7 ending modern day slavery and human trafficking.
Every year, GSN conferences take place at several renowned international locations including the Vatican, The House of Lords and the Lambeth Palace in London, the United Nations Headquarters and the Expo2020 in Dubai.
Among invitees will be officials and leaders from the above-mentioned sectors from the Balkan countries. Significant steps have already started toward initiating the creation of the GSN Balkan Chapter and our goal is to initially cover the regions of Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania, and Kosovo. It is also proposed to include the regions of Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Romania in 2019 as the Balkans chapter is expanding.
