Global Goals Week
From September 18-26, Global Goals Week will mobilize communities, demand urgency, and supercharge solutions for the Global Goals, whether it be digitally or physically. Our shared future and the achievement of the Global Goals will be determined by our global solidarity – how we work together across borders, nationalities, sectors and generations.
193 Member States of the United Nations made a universal promise in 2015 to leave no one behind through 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). One year later, Project Everyone, UNDP and the United Nations Foundation came together to honor that promise by launching Global Goals Week, an annual week of action, awareness, and accountability for the SDGs.
Today, we are at a turning point for the Global Goals, with 10 years left to achieve their vision, and COVID-19 causing devastating setbacks for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable. As part of the Decade of Action to Deliver the Global Goals, our coalition of 100 partners will mobilize on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly High-level Week to cultivate ideas, identify solutions, and hold leaders accountable.
We have an opportunity to recover better and build a world that is fairer, more sustainable and more equal. Tackling climate action, providing access to healthcare and quality food, ensuring that all children have access to quality education, and protecting the most vulnerable are now more important than ever.
