In advance of the annual forum, Dr. Sheehan co-authored an article in Citiscope with colleagues from Paris and Morocco titled Why the World Needs a Metropolitan Compact: A New Vision for the Future of Sustainability.

A generation ago, the United Nations launched the Global Compact, an effort to connect sustainability with private-sector entrepreneurism. Today, it is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, involving more than 12,000 signatories from over 160 countries.

The creation of the Global Compact was a landmark event in that it signalled the international community’s recognition of the need for a broad-based, multi-stakeholder approach to sustainability. Using that idea, we are now calling for new global recognition of one of the most powerful trends shaping worldwide systems today: metropolitanization. We call this new vision the Metropolitan Compact.

Learn more about Dr. Sheehan’s grant-funded work  including a two-year long initiative the resulted in the publication of an 84 page technical report  on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
