Defeating COVID-19 involves everyone. Because it touches everyone – our health, our livelihoods, our freedom, particularly among the most vulnerable.
We can find the way through to a better world, but only if we act together. The Sustainable Development Goals, agreed in 2015 to end poverty and inequalities, to ensure healthy lives, societies and a healthy planet, offer a shared vision and hope to get from one world to the next. They show how to reimagine, redefine, transform.
September 2020 is a unique moment when the United Nations General Assembly will convene all world leaders for the first time since the pandemic began. They will mark five years since 193 countries endorsed the Goals, as well as the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.
For the past 3 years the Global Week to Act4DSGs mobilized millions of people across the world to take individual and collective action for the SDGs to raise awareness, demand urgent action and to show world leaders that people everywhere stand behind the goals.
This September 19-26 is a joint call to action for everyone– leaders, citizens, organizations and institutions- to commit to put the Goals at the heart of their recovery plans and to use the next ten years to deliver all the Sustainable Development Goals, together.
