We invite you to be part of the Global Week to Act for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2021, which will take place from 20-26 September.
The Global Week to Act4SDGs is a global civil society initiative uniting people across the world. The aim is to mobilize people to take individual and collective action and to support the progress towards the Agenda 2030, the universal plan to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change.
The three main directions for action are:
Communicate
Raise awareness of SDG issues and get informed
Advocate
Raise your voice and hold leaders to account
Activate
Organize an (online) event and mobilize your community to take direct action for the Goals
