We all watched as this last year and a half turned everything upside down, changing the way we see the world, each other—even ourselves. We’ve seen kindness and compassion, determination and inspiration, co-operation, and community on a scale we never believed possible.

Global challenges can only be solved when we all work together. That’s why we must flip the script to show that change is possible. We must reimagine the narrative and turn apathy into action. Turn fear into hope. Division into togetherness.

We look to 2022 as a year of innovation and resolution, and we will work with all our partners across all sectors to make sure we are part of the solution. Every action matters – no matter how great or small. We will flip the script on our own approaches to help mobilize, inspire and connect our global community of SDG actors. This is our moment and the time is now.







Global Week to #Act4SDGs,
17-28 September 2021

Along with key partners, the Global Week to #Act4SDGs, held 17-28 September, achieved its goal of collecting 100 million actions from all over the world. 100 million actions that had a positive impact on efforts to accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals and make a difference for both people and planet.

From igniting creativity, driving climate action, strengthening sustainable food systems, mobilizing local governments, bringing together youth movements, and much more – the remarkable actions showed our collective commitment to ensuring a more sustainable environment and planet.

Over 1,280 organizations and millions of activists across 191 countries took part in the Week to work together towards a healthy, just and green recovery which leaves no one behind.

All actions are captured and visualized in our global heat map, which can be filtered down by country, region, SDG, and sector allowing us to report back at key UN milestone moments to show how collective action can lead to great change around the world. Visit for more information.

UN SDG Action Awards

The UN SDG Action Campaign has launched the 2022 UN SDG Action Awards and is calling for initiatives, individuals, and organizations across the globe to share their stories of transformation and impact towards achieving the 2030 Agenda.

Finalists will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Bonn, Germany, in September 2022, with winners being supported by a program of activities to help increase their impact and generate positive change.


Decent jobs, social protection, quality education and health services, climate action, clean water. All people desire these. The Sustainable Development Goals are meant to deliver them, leaving no one behind.

While the current moment of global crisis poses great risks, it also offers hope for sweeping changes, on the scale the Goals demand. People at large are coming forward to steer a new course for their world, joining governments, businesses and diverse organizations. Their common call: Act now. Achieve justice and human well-being. Heal our planet.

The UN SDG Action Campaign joins committed individuals, organizations and growing SDG networks to channel the power of people to act on the Goals – and inspire others to do the same.

We embrace a hopeful vision that the transformation of the world imagined in the SDGs can be achieved, and that the justification for doing so now is stronger than ever before.
