Be the Change

#BetheChangeUN clothing drive a huge success in New York and Rio de Janeiro

Here at the UN, staff donated enough winter clothes to fill six hampers during the “Coats for Cups” clothing drive, taking part in our Be the Change initiative where we encourage staff to 'walk the talk' to achieve the SDGs; in particular supporting  progress on SDG Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
