Julia Pulokas researches ideas to spark university and local government adoption of the UN SDGs into their work
Global Health Initiative
University of Wisconsin-Madison
I love being in Madison, WI…my favorite thing about it is the food. We have many diverse cultures and competitive restaurants that are always cooking up something great!
How did you first learn about EPIC-N?
I learned of EPIC-N in doing a project with them for my field experience for the UW-Madison Global Health Certificate coursework.
In what ways are you looking to engage, or work with others, either from within the EPIC-Network, or in general?
I am looking to engage with others in the EPIC-N as a resource from the research that I have done and I am looking for others to be resources for me so I can learn even more!
Why do you think the EPIC-Network is important?
The EPIC-Network is important because it connects those who have resources to those who need resources.
What are you hoping attendees will take with them after attending your presentation?
I’m hoping that the attendees will further understand how communities can localize the UN SDGs as well as to be able to use the large collection of resources that we have found and spark ideas that they can incorporate into their work.
