The Global Week to #Act4SDGs (17-28 September) aims to drive collective action, mobilizing key stakeholders from all sectors to drive change while reminding world leaders that people around the world are doing their part to accelerate progress on the SDGs. Held during the high-level week of the United Nations General Assembly, this year’s mobilization will also drive action around the Food Systems Summit, pre-COP in Milan, and keep up momentum in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow. 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.
Now in its fourth year, the Week has grown from strength to strength. Our mobilization ambition for 2021 is to inspire at least 100 million people to take individual and collective SDG action - from 56 million in 2020 - with an overall target of mobilizing 1 billion actions by 2030 All actions will be captured and visualised 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.
