17 Rooms-LA took place during the second half of 2022 and ended in early 2023. During that time, sixty participants from different countries and regional sectors collaborated to identify short- and medium-term actions towards achieving the SDGs.
The analysis led Cepei to the conclusion that 17 Rooms-AL should prioritize the assimilation of the SDGs over their individual assessment. This laid the ground for the most important adjustment of the whole process; while keeping the 17 Rooms label and the attention on each goal as equally important, it was decided to bring participants together in four rooms focused on SDG subgroups. Three of them were single-minded around the three dimensions of sustainable development (social, economic, and environmental), and the fourth was centered on promoting enabling environments.
