The project aims to explore and strengthen approaches and activities for sustainable development in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia. The focus is on the implementation of the United Nations' Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) at local and regional level. Therefore, the project aims to strengthen, initiate and connect innovative civil society approaches and initiatives for sustainable development in North Rhine-Westphalia and to promote new projects. The central aspect of the project is the concrete development of "Wege zur Nachhaltigkeit" (WzN) in Dortmund in cooperation with the civil society and church actors. In addition to networking local actors ("local heroes"), the project presents necessary transformations towards a sustainable society in a practical and tangible way for visitors.
The Wuppertal Institute is conducting an evaluation of the project.
