The SDG Action Zone, held during the High-level week of the UN General Assembly, is a space to break out and engage partners for transformative SDG action in new and innovative ways.

Monday, 23 September -
Friday, 27 September

Rose Garden of the United Nations HQ, New York


Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) relies on dynamic partnerships and the SDG Action Zone is a new opportunity to re-shape multilateral and diverse engagement during UNGA by enabling partners to gather, share stories and lessons, and devise plans to accelerate SDG action. The SDG Action Zone is a space inside the United Nations grounds during General Assembly week (UNGA) where different actors can engage around the UN-High level meetings and events in a meaningful and visible way:
    • Connect and build important partnerships to accelerate SDG action, inside a packed General Assembly week
    • Engage diverse actors in dynamic ways
    • Break out of silos and have meaningful conversations around the High-level events inside UN Headquarters


From 23 to 27 September, the SDG Action Zone will showcase various events to gather, share stories and lessons, and devise plans to accelerate SDG action.

Expert panel discussions, lightning talks, exhibits and more, focused on five themes: Sustainable Development Goals, Climate Action, Universal Health Coverage, Financing for Development, and Small Island States.
