Global Call to Action for the Global Day to Act4SDGs
Number of people taking this action: 250 or more
Each year on 25 September the UN SDG Action Campaign challenges the UN system, civil society, businesses, local and national governments, organisations, youth groups and individuals, around the world to come together to take actions to raise awareness, accountability and impact for the SDGs and to inspire more and more people to #Act4SDGs in their work, homes and civic lives.
Last year, 670 organisations joined in 1000+ actions across 116 counties and 380 cities reaching over 84 million people. With your support this year we can go much further and demonstrate how the UN is helping to engage more people to take concrete actions and make the SDGs a reality for all.
You can support the Global Day to #Act4SDGs in several ways:
SHARE - REACH OUT
Raise awareness of the Global Day - share the toolkits & webinars (available in several languages) to UN colleagues, civil society, stakeholder networks and on social media.
You’ll find useful sample messages & visuals on the #act4SDGs trello board.
