WHAT IS #ACT4SDGS?

On the occasion of the second anniversary of the SDGs on 25th September 2017, we are calling for actions across the world to tell people about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The launch of the SDGs on 25th September 2015 was a ground-breaking plan signed by 193 world leaders at the United Nations. Seventeen Goals to build a better world for everyone by 2030. Two years the people raise their voices and tell the world how we are doing.

“We The People Taking Action for the SDGs – #Act4SDGs” is a joint campaign convened by The UN SDG Action Campaign, the World We Want 2030the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) and Action for Sustainable Development. It calls for organizations and citizens to act on the SDGs on 25th September – a Global Day of Action.

Events in marginalised communities and with politicians in capitals are combined with photo stunts, making their demands and voices heard regarding inequality, poverty and other concerns of the people.

#Act4SDGs Voices is a video series of youth, women, older people, indigenous people, people with disabilities, Dalits and others. It aims to provide an insight into different perspectives and a window into the situation of communities.

As part of the Global Day of Action, the #Act4SDGs social media campaign amplified through Thunderclapencourages citizens to take action for the SDGs, and to tell leaders how we are doing through the global MY World 2030 survey.

The MY World 2030 survey answers will help feed into the UN’s and governments’ monitoring of progress on these Goals, raising awareness of important issues and giving a ‘people’s perspective’ from the ground, in real-time.More information about MY World 2030 is available here: about.myworld2030.org

We believe every action counts to turn promises into reality and to advance the Sustainable Development Agenda, for the benefit of all.
