Project Title 

UN SDG Action Campaign

Project Description  

The UN SDG Action Campaign is a special inter-agency initiative of the UN Secretary-General administered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The UN SDG Action Campaign’s mission is to scale up, broaden and sustain the global movement of action for the SDGs.

The UN SDG Action Campaign’s strategy is based on three pillars:

Mobilize: activating the largest number of individuals and organizations to take action on SDGs through the Global Day to Act4SDGs, taking place on 25 September to mark the anniversary of the adoption of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. This area of work includes strategic partnerships with key constituencies such as Local Governments, civil society organizations, parliamentarians and youth groups.

Inspire: leveraging art, music, festivals, new media, technologies to increase the visibility of SDGs change-makers and attract new partners via the: (a) UN SDG Action Awards; (b) SDG Global Festival of Action; (c) creative SDG content, visuals, branding & exhibitions, and new media SDG programs for individuals and partners.

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.

The UN SDG Action Campaign is seeking to recruit a Digital Support Consultant reporting to the Director to assist in the development and maintenance of the digital assets and platforms of the Action Campaign.
