Our Bridge 47 Consortium Partner, IDEA, partnered with Women for Election, a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation which trains and supports women in Ireland to run for politics.

In 2019 and 2020 this partnership developed and delivered training programmes for women Councillors on ‘Political Leadership for Sustainable Development: Why Do the Global Goals Matter to Local Councillors, and Why Do Local Councillors Matter for the Global Goals?’

This training manual is to provide guidelines for any civil society organisations that would like to engage with local politicians on how to inspire, support and equip them as leaders for sustainable development who are ready to participate in and implement the localisation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
