Get involved Vol 23, No. 07 - July 2019

Can’t come to the HLPF? Join it through the SDG Media Zone!

Every July, a very special event takes place at the UN Headquarters in New York. The annual High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) is where hundreds of policymakers, youth activists, NGO representatives and scientists come together to review our common progress on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Thanks to modern technology, you do not need to be here in person to join in on the action.

From 9 to 10 July, you will be able to tune in and join the conversation at the SDG Media Zone, which will host government, civil society and private sector leaders as well as experts, celebrities and other change-makers committed to the global good. It will feature live programming, interactive exhibits and interview opportunities.

The space will showcase major UN initiatives that inspire people to do their part to care for the planet such as the award-winning UN Act Now climate action campaign that recommends everyday actions to reduce our carbon footprints – like traveling more sustainably, saving energy or eating less meat. Others include the World Health Organization’s Walk the Talk movement which encourages people to make healthy life choices and celebrate the importance of moving for health.

It will host experts and initiatives from partners such as Sony Picture Entertainment, National Geographic, the New York City Mayor’s Office and the Global Compact’s community of responsible businesses, as well as performances by choir singers, spoken word poets and storytellers.
