About us

Collaboration between different actors is essential if we are going to accelerate the achievement of a more sustainable world. Development Goals Forum (DGF) connects youth, politicians and businesses and creates platforms where they can share ideas, form partnerships and discuss solutions for a more sustainable future. Our mission is to spread knowledge, encourage dialogue and promote action for a more sustainable world.

DGF, creating a sustainable future

Our vision

Our organisation exists due to a much-needed shift in the way in which the SDGs are talked about between various groups in society. By moving beyond traditionally constructed limits between various actors in society, we believe we can instigate real change and encourage action to realise the idea of a sustainable world for all. We have the possibility to voice our ideas and concerns to a range of different actors, which creates a much-needed dialogue about important questions that affect every single person.

Our platform is run on a voluntary basis by changemakers based in Oslo. However, we ensure diversity in ideas through working with people from different backgrounds, to constantly challenge ourselves in our journey toward creating a sustainable future.

The team/operations

The DGF-team consists of people from 22 different nationalities, and we are from diverse age groups, bringing various skills to the table and sharing a passion for creating a more sustainable world.
