In the March edition of our monthly SDG Meetup, we'll be focusing on SDG 16: Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions.

Peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law, are essential for achieving sustainable development. That’s why SDG 16 promotes peaceful and inclusive societies, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.


TYKN is a startup that is protecting access to human rights through digital identities by helping organisations validate the existence of millions of people. Tykn's digital identity platform allows public and private institutions to issue and verify digital identity credentials. It’s an innovative way to share and request personal data proofs. Users are provided with an app, a digital identity wallet, that works on every mobile device and allows them to digitally access services from those institutions in a private and secure manner. Founder Tey El-Rjula will share the inspiring journey of Tykn and how it contributes to SDG 16.

MASTERPEACE is an award-winning, global grassroots nonprofit movement present in more than 40 countries. It aims to mobilize people around the world to use their talent and energy for peace-building and togetherness. Through music, sports, arts and dialogue, MasterPeace focuses on actively engaging people around the world in peace-building actions and leads the way to a more sustainable world with less (armed) conflict.

WO = MEN: As March is the month of International Women’s Day, WO = MEN (women equals men), will create a mobile pop-up experience that allows everyone to dive into the head of a woman or a man. WO=MEN, the Dutch Gender Platform, is an association that puts the unequal power relationships and dynamic between women and men worldwide on the map with an ever-growing unique mix of organizations and individuals. Gender inequality is both a violation of human rights and an obstacle to sustainable development.
