#Act4SDGs: Global Day of Action for Sustainable Development Goals
On 25 September 2015, global leaders adopted a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to bring governments, civil society and enterprises together around 17 goals to end poverty, protect our planet and ensure peace and prosperity for all by 2030. A universal call that celebrates its 3rd anniversary today, and for the occasion reiterates its appeal to all citizens, institutions and organisations around the world to mobilise for a Global Day of Action.
A day to celebrate and get mobilised
The Global Day of Action wants to celebrate SDGs actions undertaken around the world, and mobilise numerous stakeholders to do something tangible. All these actions will be taken up in a global network of ideas and will allow others to follow the examples. The Act4SDGs platform invites participants to enter their projects in order to draw up a world map of SDGs actions as well as a collaborative, concrete list of joint actions and individual enterprises.
