Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development to Be Held in Bonn, Germany
The Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development is “powered by the UN SDG Action Campaign” with the support of Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The Festival will focus on three core themes in 2018: Innovation and disruptive change; Citizen engagement; and Communicating the SDGs.
The Festival will seek to recognize and celebrate “innovators, conveners and breakthrough actors” on the world's intractable development problems, and will showcase the latest innovations, tools and approaches to SDG implementation. The 2018 Festival will bring together a wide array of organizations and individuals to build synergies among different constituencies, increase mutual understanding, and approach problems and solutions from multiple angles.
The UN SDG Action Campaign is a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General administered by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and mandated to support the UN system-wide and the Member States on advocacy and public engagement in the SDG implementation.
The festival will take place on 21-23 March 2018 and more info can be found here and here.
