SDG Global Festival of Action


About the SDG Media Zone


The SDG Media Zone— a live format of interviews, panel discussions and other digital content—seeks to create, connect, and highlight the initiatives that the global community is working on to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Bringing together well-known personalities and Member States as well as content creators, influencers and media partners, the Zone provides a dynamic space to strengthen the commitment of the international community in support of the 2030 Agenda.

At the Global Festival of Action in Bonn, Germany (21-23 March), the SDG Action Campaign is organizing such a space — an SDG Studio — that will set the scene for conversations with experts showcasing change-making initiatives and innovative approaches to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.


The Global Festival of Action


The Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development is the world´s most inspiring SDG event to celebrate, empower, and connect the global community driving Action for the Sustainable Development Goals.

Organised by the UN SDG Action Campaign with the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the German Federal Foreign Office, the Festival brings together the global community taking action to make the Sustainable Development Goals a reality. It will recognize and celebrate the innovators, conveners and breakthrough actors who are transforming lives and generating practical solutions to some of the world’s most intractable problems.

Taking place in Bonn each year, the Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development provides a dynamic and interactive space to showcase the latest innovations, tools and approaches to SDG implementation and connect organizations and individuals from different sectors and regions to exchange, build partnerships, and make the impact of their solutions scale.
