Number of people taking this action: 250 or more
From 18th until 25th of September 2019, the Association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG) organises its second ‘Week of the Sustainable Municipality’. During this week, 90 Flemish municipalities hang the SDG-flag at their city Halls and put their ‘sustainable heroes’ in the spotlights. The heroes are citizens, schools, companies and organisations who contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals in their own daily way and therefore become the "local faces of the global goals". Through this widespread public campaign, local authorities are not only given the opportunity to show their willingness to take on an exemplary and leading role in the Agenda 2030, it isalso a unique chance to work together with engaged citizens, companies, schools and organisations within the municipal area, to give them the credits they deserve and to familiarise them with an internationally binding story: Their local actions contribute to global challenges!
