The UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
17 Goals to Transform Our World
BEN is committed to The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for everyone. These are global challenges but if we think global, act local we can help address poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
What area(s) do we cover?
Shropshire and its border. Shropshire, is a landscape formed by glacial processes more than 10,000 years ago, creating a series of hollows in the rolling landscape that became filled with water from the retreating glacier. Where these hollows filled with deeper water, they remain as ‘meres’ (glacial lakes), whereas natural processes have allowed many of the shallower ones to fill in and form into peat bogs or ‘mosses’.
An initiative of Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, TBEN’s aims and objectives are managed through a Steering Group of local business people dedicated to promoting the network’s values to benefit like-minded organisations.
