Sinds 2016 is Deventer Global Goal City. De Global Goals zijn vanuit het oogpunt van klimaat en maatschappij zeer urgent en relevant. Daarnaast bieden ze volop kansen voor innovatie van bestaande en nieuwe business.
Open houding naar de wereld
Deventer wordt van oudsher gekenmerkt door een open houding naar de wereld om haar heen. Vanuit die houding heeft Deventer zich gecommitteerd aan de 17 Global Goals.
Toen de VN in 2015 de 17 Sustainable Development Goals vaststelden (hierna Global Goals genoemd), werden deze direct geadopteerd door alle lidstaten als belangrijke gezamenlijke agenda, waaronder Nederland.
Bedrijven en organisaties die de Global Goals in hun bedrijfsvoering omarmen, zijn de bedrijven van de toekomst. In 2018 is de kerngroep Deventer4GlobalGoals opgezet, met vertegenwoordigers uit onderwijs, bedrijfsleven, Ngo’s, cultuur en gemeente. NetSib Foundation neemt vanuit de Ngo’s als partner deel in de kerngroep Deventer4GlobalGoals.

De gemeente Deventer heeft in januari 2020 de Global Goals prijs van de Vereniging Nederlandse Gemeenten International ontvangen als ‘Meest inspirerende gemeente’ in de categorie: ’Verbinder: Samenleving en bedrijfsleven.’ Deventer krijgt deze prijs omdat ze op innovatieve en impactvolle manier burgers, bedrijven en andere lokale partijen betrekt bij de implementatie van de Global Goals.
Bij het stadskantoor in Deventer is het Duurzaamheidscentrum gevestigd. Hier kunnen burgers en bedrijven zich laten inspireren en informeren over hun eigen bijdrage aan duurzaamheid en klimaatverandering. De Nationale Ombudsman, Reinier van Zutphen, kwam op 17 september j.l. op bezoek voor overleg met een afvaardiging van de kerngroep Deventer4GlobalGoals.

Deventer has been Global Goal City since 2016. The Global Goals are very urgent and relevant from a climate and society point of view. In addition, they offer plenty of opportunities for innovation in existing and new business.
Open attitude to the world
Traditionally Deventer has been characterized by an open attitude towards the world around it. From that attitude Deventer has committed itself to the 17 Global Goals.
When the UN established the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (hereinafter referred to as Global Goals) in 2015, they were immediately adopted by all member states, including The Netherlands, as an important common agenda.
Companies and organisations that embrace the Global Goals in their business operations are the companies of the future. In Deventer the Deventer4GlobalGoals core group was set up in 2018, with representatives from domains as education, business, NGOs, culture and the municipality. NetSib Foundation participates from the NGOs as a partner in the core group Deventer4GlobalGoals.
Deventer wins Global Goals Municipal Election 2020
In January 2020, the municipality of Deventer received the Global Goals award from the Association of Dutch Municipalities International as the 'Most inspiring municipality' in the category: 'Connector: society and business.' Deventer received this award because it empowers citizens, businesses and other local parties involved in an innovative and impact way at the implementation of the Global Goals.
The Sustainability Center Deventer is also located at the city office in Deventer. Citizens and companies can be inspired and informed here about their own contribution to sustainability and climate change. The National Ombudsman, Reinier van Zutphen, arrived on September 17th for a visit and meeting with a delegation from the Deventer4GlobalGoals core team.

The Romanian President Klaus Iohannis signed the decrees with honors awarded to various Dutch people on Friday March 9th. Jan Achtereekte from Deventer, chairman of the NetSib Foundation, is one of the eight persons to receive this honor.
Achtereekte receives the award ('Cultural Merit' Order in the rank of Commander, Category F - 'Promotion of Culture') as appreciation for his contribution to the development of Romanian-Dutch educational and cultural ties. Partly because of his current role as chairman of NetSib Foundation from Deventer.

Former diplomat Coen Stork (89) passed away in his hometown Amsterdam.
Coen Stork was the ambassador of the Netherlands in Romania from 1988 to 1993. He reported to the Dutch media the tumultuous events in Bucharest and the rest of Romania during the fall of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in 1989. After that time he was regularly invited to comment on the dictatorships and the fall of authoritarian leaders on television.
Coen Stork was somewhat of an unorthodox diplomat, with an eye for artists and dissidents, for people who were in trouble. In his time spent in Romania, he offered assistance to the dissidents who suffered from the Ceausescu regime. From Deventer we have worked closely with Coen Stork in the period 1989-1993; from action-committee "Deventer helps Romania", foundation Deventer-Romania and the municipality of Deventer. He also followed the cooperation between Deventer and Sibiu after his resignation as ambassador with great interest and supported this cooperation were he could.
During the great Romanian Event on October 7, 1995 in the Lebuinus Church in Deventer, Coen Stork held a speech for the more than a thousand visitors (see photo).
His memoirs appeared in 2012 under the title The Red Ambassador.
