COVID-19 is turning our lives upside down. People all around the world are taking to the streets and joining in solidarity for a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reimagine and create a better future.
One that is more equal. More active on climate change. That ends poverty. And protects health.
We have the universal plan we need for a just and sustainable recovery from the pandemic: the Sustainable Development Goals.
This September 18-26, 2020 while world leaders meet virtually at the UN General Assembly, join millions of people and organizations everywhere to take action for the Goals and to demand governments stick to the plan.
This is a turning point for people and the planet. Let’s turn it in the right direction, and recover better together!
How will you take action?

Organize an (online) event and mobilize your community to take direct action for the Goals
Example Actions: Organise a beach or park clean up, tree planting drive, volunteer at your local foodbank or take part in community climate actions.
