On 25 September 2015 world leaders adopted the Sustainable Development Goals/SDGs. Each year on the anniversary of this historic day, citizens, institutions, and organizations around the world are called to #ACT4SDGs in a global day of action. It is also a day to mobilize people to take concrete actions, reaffirming the shared global commitment for the achievement of the SDGs. Each action becomes part of a global network of ideas and examples for others to follow.
Actions should generate SDG:
Awareness: increase public awareness of the SDGs among citizens and all stakeholders, especially in the communities that are left behind; eg. Public event/exhibition, presentations in schools, social media campaigns, community dinners etc
Accountability: Empower people with information to help engage others and hold their governments to account; e.g. Public declarations, presentations of MY World citizen voices to governments, petitions etc
Impact: Take individual actions and/or unite with others to make a lasting change towards SDG achievement; e.g. Tree planting, urban regeneration etc
How to join:
Add your voice to the #Act4SDGs global movement, by telling the world how you are taking action for the SDGs and ask your family, friends, colleagues and your networks to do the same.
Plan an action for the SDGs, as an individual, a civil society organisation or private sector organisation.
Tell the world how you #Act4SDGs, by signing up to be featured as an SDG Action Partner on the global map of the #Act4SDGs platform.
