Global Day of Action in the SDG Media Zone @UN, 25 Sep 13:00

We have received the following from Action for Sustainable Development

As you may know we mark the 25th September as the Global Day of Action for the SDGs, in partnership with the UN’s SDG Action Campaign and with GCAP. 

Join us on the 25 September! #Act4SDGs

If you are in New York, you are invited to join featured stories of activists from around the world:…

  • 13:00-14:00 on 25 September
  • SDG Media Zone session, directly in front of the UN buildings
  • Speakers include: Achim Steiner, UNDP; Federica Mogherini, European Commission (TBC); Kumi Naidoo, Amnesty International; Namhla Mniki Mangaliso, African Monitor; Jayathma Wickramanayake, UN SG Envoy on Youth and many more. 

*Please let us know by end of FRIDAY 14th SEPTEMBER if you would like to attend as you will need a special event PASS*

This one hour event will be designed to feel like the ‘newsroom’ for the Global Day and serve to bridge local actions with global conversations through innovative media and live interventions from key actors, partners and stakeholders gathered in New York.

The Global Day of Action was launched in 2017 and saw thousands of individuals and communities joining this worldwide mass mobilization. 700+ partners from 380 cities and 116 countries responded to the call to action. This year the Global Day  coincides with the opening of the UN General Assembly, presenting a unique opportunity to amplify the actions being taken across the world and bring them to the attention of world leaders in New York. 

Onwards!
