The SDG Media Zone, which will take place at the UNHQ Visitors’ Lobby during the High-level Political Forum (HLPF), will host government, civil society and private sector leaders, as well as experts, celebrities and other change-makers committed to the global good.

The HLPF (9 to 18 July) is the largest annual gathering of leaders from all sectors of society to discuss progress on the Goals. This year, nearly 50 countries are expected to present their Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) highlighting progress on the Goals—with an aim to share experiences, including successes, challenges and lessons learned, with the global community.
