Fostering the accomplishment of the 2030 Agenda from the bottom upUCLG have continuously pushed for the acknowledgement of local governments as key actors in the achievement of the agendas, especially within the UN System, and we know that the global goals can only be achieved at the local level. This global campaign is an opportunity for us to continue proving that only if local spheres of governments participate in the implementation of the agendas at all levels, will the global goals become a reality.In this context, we  invited our members to record a short thirty-seconds video to showcase the initiative or initiatives they are undertaking to raise awareness on the SDGs among your citizens.
