I love this picture so much! Can you guess why? The tote bag! Talk about being a walking advertisement of the SDGs ;). The unconscious act of spreading the message of sustainable development aimed at ensuring that everyone understands that as individuals, organisations and the government we all have our roles to play is why I wear a smile in this picture:)
How did I get this bag?
From Women in Tech to Cybercom
Remember the Women in Tech Conference held in celebration of the International Women’s Day? One of the companies present that day, Cybercom, decided to host a meet-up at their office to introduce everyone to their innovation zone. I wish I could give you full details from the meet-up, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I had less than thirty minutes at this event. However, it was thirty minutes well spent:)
So what made my short time at the meetup worth it? There were various booths concentrating on the various projects they are involved in as a company. However, guess the booth I spent all that time at? Sustainability booth!
In summary, Cybercom an IT consulting company, seeing that drastic actions have to be taken to ensure that the seventeen goals are acheived by 2030, have stepped up to ensure that other organisations are working towards these goals by providing digital sustainability services. In other words, they support companies by giving advisory services on how they can be sustainable in all stages of their businesses from ideation to service delivery. (Interesting right?)
Let’s take a sneak peak…
Everyone has a part to play in achieving the seventeen sustainable goals. What are you doing in your little world?
For students who might be interested in all that Cybercom is involved in, let this picture juggle your mind…
