Get involved Vol 22, No. 09 - September 2018

Join the conversation in the SDG Media Zone!

World leaders will soon be coming together at UN Headquarters in New York as the UN General Assembly’s 73rd session and its high-level week kick off in September. The global goals and our joint efforts to finance and achieve them, building a healthier, more equitable and prosperous planet, will be among the many items on a busy agenda.

On 24-28 September, the UN will host the SDG Media Zone to act as a dynamic space for well-known personalities and UN Member States as well as content creators, influencers and media partners to discuss change-making initiatives and innovative approaches to achieving the goals.

This platform will also enable speakers to call on humanity to engage in the SDGs. The Zone will have daily themes including the Legacy of Mandela, the UN Youth Strategy, Climate Action and the Right to Education.

The interviews and panel discussions will take place in a special tent on the UN Visitors’ Plaza. Although access to UN Headquarters is limited to the public at this time, audiences outside of the UN are encouraged to join in the conversation online. In 2017, the #SDGLive hashtag had a total reach of more than 53 million people on Twitter.

Get involved online, and become a part of a global community of change-makers. Help us bolster the commitment to achieve the SDGs!
