During 16-25 September 2022, the UN SDG Action Campaign with partners, including GCAP, and other partners will scale up engagement across the world across the themes of climate, justice and peace – from igniting creativity, driving climate action, strengthening sustainable food systems, mobilizing local governments, bringing together youth movements, and much more – remarkable actions that showcase our collective commitment to ensuring a more sustainable environment and the planet.

All actions are captured and visualized on the website managed by GCAP and partners peoplesassembly.global, as wel as by the UN´s Global Map of SDG Action, which can be filtered down by country, region, SDG, and sector allowing us to report back at key UN milestone moments to show how collective action can lead to great change around the world.

#FlipTheScript – The power is in our hands

The SDG story is about what most people want: more inclusive, peaceful and sustainable societies, no later than 2030. We know that, especially after two years of the pandemic that has turned the world upside down. It is time to react, reset, restart. Old models have not delivered. We need new ones.

That’s why people must rewrite the story that shapes a new reality. It’s about knowing that the impossible is possible – if we act together. It means taking back our world because it belongs to all people, not just a few. We need to flip the script to achieve a healthy, just and green world, the ambitions at the heart of the SDGs.

Last year’s Global Week to #Act4SDGs achieved its goal of collecting 100 million actions from all over the world. 100 million actions that had a positive impact on efforts to accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals and make a difference for both people and planet.
