We are at an inflection point for people and planet, one that is testing our very humanity, solidarity and achievements and people everywhere are now demanding a better future for our world. This September, it’s time for governments, organizations, businesses and all people to engage in honest conversations to supercharge solutions at the scale demanded by so many people and required to reach the Sustainable Development Goals.
Over the course of three days on 22–24 September during the UN General Assembly High-level Week, the fully virtual SDG Action Zone will be the foremost collaborative space for engaging emerging and world leaders from across sectors in transformative discourse and disruptive debates to drive the exponential change so needed for people and our planet.
The programme will be crowd-sourced through a call for sessions, talks and creative content from around the world — leading to a more transparent, open, and inclusive UN General Assembly.
The call for applications to be part of the SDG Action Zone is now open!
Submit your proposals to host deep dive dialogues, interactive workshops, lightning talks, creative performances, virtual exhibits and immersive experiences, and to be considered for the SDG Action Zone speaker roster. We’re looking for passion, know-how, action and acceleration moving beyond the status quo; those willing to embrace tough conversations, impart knowledge and experiences in order to drive transformative progress across the Goals.
Submit your application via SDGActionZone.org until 3 August 2020
