17 Goals to Transform Our World

Since 2016, the SDG Media Zone has been one of the main features of the UN General Assembly high-level week, bringing together UN Member States, content creators, influencers, activists and media partners to highlight actions and solutions in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. Through impactful in-depth interviews, panel discussions and Ted-style talks, the SDG Media Zone takes the conversation on advancing the 2030 Agenda out of the policy sphere and into the public discourse.
