As Jonathan says himself: “The SDG Challenge is real: we have enough good intentions and inspiring slogans, so now we start to act. That has consequences and we must be ready for them – Otherwise we risk the same fate as so many tragic heroes. Be prepared to face inner demons and harness their energy – and draw on the support of your Nudge colleagues.”
