Civil society activities for 2nd year anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals

This September marks the two year anniversary since the Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by all 193 United Nations Member States. To take stock of goal progress and galvanise additional actions from across sectors, there are a number of activities planned both at UN Headquarters in New York and in communities around the world.

18-24 September, New York, Climate Week

The 9th annual Climate Week NYC will take place during the General Debate of the UN General Assembly (UNGA). It will gather leaders from business, government and civil society to demonstrate how to make meaningful gains towards a zero emissions future and the achievement of the Paris Climate Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.

20 September, New York, Global Goalkeepers

Doers, thinkers and givers in the field of international sustainable development will come together to have a frank conversation about the status of Sustainable Development Goals and look at how to scale some of the most high impact and resource efficient SDG service delivery programs.
