New open workshops on how to use the SDG Impact Assessment Tool

plus SDG Impact Assessment Tool

The SDG Impact Assessment Tool is a free, online, learning tool that visualises the results from a self-assessment of how an activity, organisation or innovation affect the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It aims to stimulate the user to get a better understanding of the complexity of sustainable development and the different aspects of the SDGs. In the end you will be better equipped to prioritize actions ahead.

In these workshops you will get to try the tool yourself. We will start by presenting and demonstrating the tool. You will then get to try working with the tool in smaller groups. By using a made-up case, you will get to practice on how to make a good object description, how to do an initial sorting of how the object relates to the SDGs, and how to reason when you are to decide if the impact on each SDG is positive/negative, direct/indirect, or if more knowledge is needed.

You will learn:

  • The five steps you need to go through when you are making an SDG impact assessment.
  • How to use the tool.
  • How the tool can be applied for different users.

We recommend you create an account for the SDG Impact Assessment Tool before the workshop. Create your account
