In the Closing Session of the SDG Action Zone, we’ll share how the Global Goals turn up in local communities. Ultimately, for this work to be meaningful, it needs to have an impact on people’s lives and the planet. Otherwise, we risk mere words without true transformation. The Deputy Secretary-General will give a reality check about SDG progress and trajectory. She’ll reveal both challenges and successes, while underscoring the urgency for each one of us to play our part in shaping a world where the SDGs are a lived reality. Change needs to happen now, there is not a moment to waste, and in this closing session, the SDG Action Zone will set a race to the top.
