An incredible Global Week to #Act4SDGs
Thank you for joining the Global Week to #Act4SDGs
We’ve mobilized millions of activists, organizations and individuals around the globe to drive collective action and meaningful change to #TurnItAround for a healthy, just and green recovery which leaves no one behind.
Among the many SDG actions taken during the Week were tree planting drives, environmental cleanup campaigns, clothes swaps, home composting projects, efforts to eliminate single-use plastics, #ZeroHunger community gardening campaigns, and training seminars for first responders to survivors of sexual violence.
To close the Week, we had a special performance by Sri Lankan singer and Road to Rights Ambassador for Clean Water Raini Charuka — check it out below!
The action doesn’t stop here
Keep sharing your SDG actions throughout the year on the SDG global map and on social media — tag us at @SDGAction and use the hashtags #Act4SDGs #TurnItAround.
It’s critical that we maintain the pressure on our leaders to ‘keep the promise’ of the SDGs and show we are playing our part. We commit to keep championing your voice and your actions at key decision-making moments to ensure that we leave no one behind.
Starting tomorrow — the Turning Point Dialogues: Climate Edition
As the global community prepares for COP26, we are proud to announce our special Turning Point Dialogues: Climate Edition. With episodes premiering each week in the lead up to the conference, meet young climate activists on the frontlines who will share their insights into the realities of this crisis and highlight what is needed to #TurnItAround for climate action for people and the planet.
