“Anti-Corruption is a key enabler to accelerate SDGs progress”

9.12.2022 - 9:00 - 17:30

The 9th of December is International Anti-Corruption Day and this event wants to be our contribution to the fight against corruption, we believe that the best way to raise public awareness of corruption is to speak about this very dangerous phenomenon. Corruption as a result of civil and business misconduct and wrongdoing subtracts valuable resources in times when they are most needed. Yet, the problem of corruption is not only at the country level where it can be faced globally, but also at the individual level where single actions can play a role in order to prevent and counter corruption to develop higher resilience and foster integrity at all levels of society.
According to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, “Preventing corruption unlocks progress towards the SDGs, helps protect our planet, creates jobs, achieves gender equality, and secures wider access to essential services such as healthcare and education”.
