Connect: connecting people’s perceptions and actions on the SDGs with decision makers in SDG planning and review processes at all levels via the MYWorld Global Survey, whilst bringing peoples’ perceptions and actions to the High-Level Political Forum and the UN General Assembly in partnership with UNDP, UN DESA, and UN/DP Countries Teams.
The UN SDG Action Campaign serves as a hub to inspire people’s action on the Sustainable Development Goals, connect and amplify stakeholder efforts, showcase impact, share best practices, incubate and test out innovative efforts around SDG action and advocacy whilst encouraging and make available SDG accountability mechanisms, including citizen-generated data.
