We need to clarify if we can do this link. For the past ok but for the present and future not. --Gil Penha-Lopes (talk) 09:35, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Worth putting any of these sentences in boxes?

"Awareness-raising activities should aim to increase the engagement of citizens and local communities in order to promote their sense of ownership of the Agenda and their participation in the achievement of the SDGs at local level. But awareness-raising is not only about letting citizens know about the existence of the SDGs. It is also about empowering them to participate in the achievement of the SDGs in their daily lives. Municipal and regional governments should be supported to recognise the 2030 Agenda as a framework for action, and set up mechanisms that enable citizen participation and institutional accountability." [1]

SDG general "This path is also pursued by Fare (2011b) who has proposed three multi-dimensional criteria for use in analysing the ability of CCS to boost sustainable development: 1) territorialization of activities (localization of exchange, creation of social links, participation in democratic process); 2) stimulation of the dynamics of exchange (development of access to credit, empowerment, struggle against poverty); and 3) the transformation of practices, lifestyles and social representations (responsible consumption, ecological citizenship, making organizations responsible, valorizing the capacities of every individual, and collective empowerment)." (Fare & Ahmed, 2017)
