Government & Politics
Bringing the UN to the world and the world to the UN.
Over the course of three days during the UN General Assembly, the SDG Action Zone brings together the highest levels of UN leadership, activists, government officials, business leaders, changemakers and disruptors in a virtual collaborative space – to highlight the ecosystem-wide solutions, plans, and investments needed to positively impact people’s lives and the future of our planet.
With the fierce urgency of the now, we have no choice but to all step up to the most ambitious of global agendas. By amplifying voices, convening thought leaders, connecting changemakers, and calling on all participants to leverage their own sphere of influence, the SDG Action Zone provides everyone with the opportunity to cultivate the community and momentum needed to transform this moment of global upheaval into one of movement-building for people and the planet.
How to participate
Each attendee will have the opportunity to submit questions to the speakers directly on the platform as they are watching each session, a selection of which will be posed to speakers who will reconvene at the close of each day’s program during a dedicated “Ask Away” session. We also encourage everyone to share their experience on social media using #SDGActionZone2021 and #ForPeopleForPlanet.
