Channeling the power of the crowd for people and planet

Join the Global Week to #Act4SDGs (17-28 September 2012)

Now in its fifth year, the Global Week to #Act4SDGs has grown from strength to strength. Our mobilization ambition for 2021 is to inspire millions of actions with an overall target of mobilizing 1 billion actions by 2030.

People around the world are joining in solidarity to show there is hope beyond the pandemic, and that we can turn it around for a healthy, just and green recovery, keeping the promise of the SDGs in this decisive decade counting down to 2030.

All actions will be captured and visualized in a 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.

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.
