Multi-Stakeholder Platform of the Agenda Canaria 2030
Gobierno de Canarias (The Regional Government of the Canary Islands)
Local / Regional Government
As the 2030 Agenda asserts, sustainable development isn't solely a governmental responsibility; it requires the active involvement of all stakeholders at every level. To bolster the implementation of the Agenda Canaria 2030—a localised initiative of the UN 2030 Agenda in the Canary Islands—a Multi-Stakeholder Platform has been established. This platform serves as a collaborative workspace designed to coordinate and articulate the actions of various stakeholders and interest groups. Therefore, its purpose is to uphold the central principle of the Agenda 2030: "leave no one behind", and to foster inclusivity and multi-stakeholder partnerships for localising the SDGs. The Multi-Stakeholder Platform encourages knowledge exchange and identification of solutions to current and future challenges related to sustainable development in the Canary Islands. Specifically, its objectives include:
Coordinating the actions of various actors and stakeholders for the implementation of the Agenda Canaria 2030 by: a) Creating a space for mutual learning and exchange. b) Promoting sustainable development across all islands and municipalities.
Building capacities in the field of sustainable development by: a) Strengthening the abilities of territorial actors. b) Collaboratively developing and producing relevant knowledge products. c) Managing information and knowledge for stakeholders, with accessibility for stakeholders and other territories.
Advancing the implementation of local and island initiatives, ensuring alignment with the SDGs and identifying priorities by: a) Facilitating the implementation of local initiatives and ensuring their alignment with the Agenda Canaria 2030. b) Mobilising actors and resources for the accomplishment of local initiatives.
The Multi-Stakeholder Platform aspires to facilitate society's comprehensive involvement in the formulation, execution, and monitoring of sustainable development strategies throughout the archipelago. It aims to advocate and nurture the requisite leadership of citizens and stakeholders in the strategy development, ensuring alignment with the vision, mission, and values of the Agenda Canaria 2030. As a result, a form for affiliation with the Agenda Canaria 2030 has been activated. Individuals and organizations subscribing to the Agenda Canaria 2030 pledge to advance the attainment of the SDGs and the Canary Islands' objectives daily, and to serve as trailblazers for other participants and stakeholders in this transformation, as well as for future generations.
The Multi-Stakeholder Platform facilitates the full participation of society in the design, implementation, and monitoring of sustainable development strategies across the archipelago. It promotes and fosters the necessary leadership of citizens and stakeholders in the strategy's development, ensuring alignment with the vision, mission, and values of the Agenda Canaria 2030. Accordingly, a form for joining the Agenda Canaria 2030 is available. The individuals and organizations who commit to the Agenda Canaria 2030 work to promote the achievement of the SDGs and the Canary Islands goals in their daily lives. They act as guides for other actors, stakeholders, and future generations involved in this transformation.
Simultaneously, this platform functions as a collaborative workspace, coordinating the actions of various actors and stakeholders for the implementation of the Agenda Canaria 2030. It facilitates the exchange of knowledge and the identification of solutions to emerging challenges related to sustainable development. As such, the Permanent Participation Forums were established to ensure the participation of groups that, for various reasons, might be overlooked in the progress of the Agenda Canaria 2030 implementation. These forums include:
- Intergenerational Dialogues (children, youth, and older people)
- Cultural Heritage and Culture (cultural ecosystem)
- Social Economy (entities of the third sector of social action, social economy, cooperatives, and transformative economies)
- Labor Market (trade union organizations, business organizations, companies, self-employed, and professionals)
- Academy - Universities
- Public Sector
The Permanent Participation Forums self-govern through their members. Each forum receives support from the management unit of the Canary Islands Government, responsible for promoting the ACDS 2030 for coordination and revitalization of forums. This includes the option of external support. Furthermore, the platform provides space and digital support to several bodies established to equip the ACDS 2030 with an appropriate governance model. This model facilitates the participation of multiple stakeholders: the Canary Islands Council for Sustainable Development, the Inter-Institutional Working Group, the Innovation Centre for Sustainable Development, and the various Permanent Participation Forums.
The primary collaborators in this initiative are the individuals and organisations committed to the Agenda Canaria 2030 (https://canarias2030.org/), as well as those actively engaged in the enduring forums established under the umbrella of the Multi-Stakeholder Platform (https://www.gobiernodecanarias.org/agendacanaria2030/participa/). Each of these entities is dedicated to advancing the achievement of the SDGs and the goals outlined in the Agenda Canaria 2030 within their daily operations. They also act as guiding beacons for other participants and stakeholders involved in this transformative endeavour, as well as for forthcoming generations.
