BRINGING THE UN TO THE WORLD AND THE WORLD TO THE UN
From 21 to 23 September 2022, the SDG Action Zone will take place for its fourth year during the High-level Week of the UN General Assembly (UNGA). Building on the success of previous editions, it promises to be the collaborative ‘counterbalance’ to read speeches and scripted programs, championing the activists and the allies accelerating progress towards the SDGs, through candid, honest and powerful conversations. The three-day virtual Action Zone will feature an ambitious array of speakers: from grassroots changemakers, to business leaders, government representatives, and the highest levels of UN leadership – bringing together diverse voices not often given a platform to meaningfully engage and collaborate during UNGA.
The countdown to 2030 is on, and there is truly no time left for empty rhetorical promises unsupported by transformative, sustainable action. For this reason, this year’s Action Zone will spotlight the people “doing” and “demanding”, the “champions” and “allies” of sustainable development from around the world.
