The fifth SDG Global Festival of Action, powered by the UN SDG Action Campaign, finds new ways to inspire, mobilize and connect people and organizations to take action on the SDGs. In light of the pandemic, the Festival was held in a dynamic virtual space with six different stages, featuring plenary sessions, lightning talks, performances, interactive workshops, exhibitions and a space to connect with leaders, changemakers, activists, private sector and more.
This year also included the first regional spin-off edition – the SDGs Global Festival of Action from Japan, highlighting local SDG efforts by various stakeholders and experts. And last but not least, the SDG Action Awards Ceremony celebrated transformative projects that accelerate action towards the Goals and was held on 25 March.
A community of thousands of other inspiring individuals, SDG stakeholders and policy makers, took the opportunity to network and share your vision. Have a look at the Festival highlights.
