From 18th until 25th of September 2019, the Association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG) organises its second ‘Week of the Sustainable Municipality’. During this week, no less than 90 Flemish municipalities hangthe SDG-flag at their city Halls and put their ‘sustainable heroes’ in the spotlights. The heroes are citizens, schools, companies and organisations who contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals in their own daily way and therefore become the local faces of the 17 global goals. Through this widespread public campaign, local authorities are not only given the opportunity to show their willingness to take on an exemplary and leading role in the Agenda 2030. It is also a unique chance to work together with engaged citizens, companies, schools and organisations within the municipal area, to give them the credits they deserve and to familiarise them with an internationally binding story: Their local actions contribute to global challenges!

GCAP has initiated and coordinated the Act4SDGs Global Days of Action on 25 September 2017 and 2018 in cooperation with the SDG Action Campaign and Action for Sustainable Development. This is part of the global Faces of Inequality Campaign, which aims to end inequalities in all its different forms – gender, income, wealth, geographical, environmental, abilities, justice, ethnic, et al. So many of us have stories to tell that are not being heard. Under the campaign we have produced inequality reports in more than 25 countries and initiated advocacy with the national governments. The campaign has brought forth the voices of the unheard – the marginalized groups like the women, especially multiple-discriminated women, children and youth, older persons, people with disabilities, people discriminated by work, caste or descent including Dalits, indigenous communities and migrants and refugees. It has given a “Face” to the inequality debate, which goes much beyond data and figures.

The 17 Goals Campaign is the first and the biggest national cross-sectoral initiative for the Sustainable Development Goals in Poland. It encourages business to contribute to the realization of the 2030 Agenda. The Campaign brought together a wide range of actors: companies, governmental institutions and NGO’s under the honorary patronage of the Polish Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology. It is an example how the national, cross-sectoral cooperation towards the 2030 Agenda can work. The 17 Goals Campaign mobilizes business community and other stakeholders to take action and create cross-sectoral partnerships for chosen Goals or include certain issues in business models and CSR practices. Its main goal is to encourage 500 companies to act for SDGs till 2030. The Campaign was launched in 2017. It was raising awareness about the 2030 Agenda in business sector for the first time in Poland. Its second edition in 2018 was dedicated to creating concrete ideas of actions that business can take. Now, during its third edition, these ideas are being implemented. There is a number of cross-sectoral initiatives that are already being executed. Also, a new set of SDGs indicators for Polish business are being created. Extensive knowledge and know-how has been collected during the campaign as well. This website – the online knowledge hub on SDGs for Polish business has been created, 6 publications has been published, and 17 workshops and conferences has been organized. The 17 Goals Campaign has become a starting point for many companies to begin work on including SDGs into their strategies and practices. It also helped create a number of projects for SDGs that are already executed. Additionally, the campaign has started the nationwide discussion on the role the Polish business could play in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. It could serve as an example on how the national B2B campaign for SDGs, involving a wide range of actors, could be conducted.

Dans un monde où les conflits ne cessent de s’accroître, menaçant nos libertés, notre sécurité, notre vie, nos biens, notre développement, notre avenir et nos aspirations les plus légitimes, il urge de se lever ensemble et de lutter farouchement contre tous les maux qui alimentent ces conflits. Sans la paix et la sécurité, aucun pays n’aura l’occasion d’entreprendre un réel processus du développement.    “ Sans la paix ni la sécurité, la jeunesse n’a point d’avenir ”. Nous sommes tous à la recherche d’un avenir, d’un développement, sans oublier que cela n’advient qu’au moyen d’une formation qualifiée, l’enseignement d’un code de moralité citoyenne dont l’essence et la fin sont d’apprendre aux citoyens comment vivre et vivre ensemble dans une République. Comment éviter les conflits? Aussi petits qu’ils soient, il peut entraîner des conséquences lourdes. Même un morceau de feu à charbon brûle toute une maison.   Cette rencontre de 48 heures intensives, réunira des organes représentatifs des jeunes aussi bien en Afrique que dans la diaspora, en mettant notamment en lumière le fort potentiel des jeunes qui se trouvent sur place au Maroc. L’implication d’institutions spécialisées en la matière, des pouvoirs publics, des institutions internationales et du secteur privé est essentiel à la réussite de cet événement. Nous souhaitons avoir leur accompagnement tout au long de ce forum et mieux encore, tout au long de ce processus d’implication des jeunes à la culture et à la promotion de la paix en Afrique.    Nous avons tous un intérêt commun: (la Paix) . Mettons-nous donc au travail et traduisons nos volontés en actions.   A la différence des autres forums des jeunes, le présent forum traitera des sujets tels que : (la citoyenneté responsable, la bonne gouvernance, la prévention des conflits, la recherche des solutions négociées aux conflits  par le dialogue franc et objectif, la protection des civils dans les conflits, les libertés publiques, l’implication de la jeunesse dans la construction et la consolidation de la paix et de la sécurité en Afrique, et une formation sur les mécanisme de la paix et de sécurité opérationnels en Afrique). Ce Forum se ponctuera par la rédaction et l’adoption  d’un “PACTE DE LA JEUNESSE POUR LA PAIX”. Les différents cadres de discussion des sujets sus-évoqués sont les suivants: Conférences, Simulations et Ateliers). Nous avons décidé de mettre en place un Laboratoire de la Jeunesse pour une Paix Durable en Afrique ( LAJPADA ) et des branches de  coordination dans chaque pays ( Coordonnateur Jeunesse pour la Paix – CJP).

Rishilpi has been operating in Bangladesh for over 40 years and one of our goals is to reduce early marriages in southwestern Bangladesh and support women's emancipation through  economic and cultural activities aimed at  taking action, raising awareness among women,  men and the whole community.  In 2013, the UN Human Rights Council recognized the need to combat early marriages, recognizing these as a violation of human rights. Bangladesh remains one of the countries with the highest percentage of child brides in the world.  The program of Rishilpi - the Amar Sonar Poribar (ASP  - meaning my ideal family)  is a component of the education support program dedicated to young female students. Started in July 2003, it aims to empower young women to become independent, gain self-confidence and be full members of the society in which they live. Sixth-class adolescent girls are automatically enrolled in the ASP program. At the moment 822 girls are taking part.  Read more: http://bit.ly/bambinenonspose Every day from 25 september to the 11 october -  U.N.

The Development Dinner will raise awareness of the SDGs and mobilize our community to think globally while taking action locally. Our aim is to raise the consciousness of our global connectedness.  We SEE THE HOPE in the Sustainable Development Goals - goals that developed and developing nations alike have prioritized and committed to working toward together. Change for Children projects have the Sustainable Development Goals at their very core. We see the value of the goals when we visit our projects. We see it when we meet those impacted by our partners. We see it in communities, in schools, and in the faces of those we meet. We want others to see it too! When we work together, the world’s problems become solvable. One-by-one. Change is possible.  Join Us!

Drawing on the experience of the HLPF convened by ECOSOC in July 2019, which focused on a review of 6 SDGs including SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals), there was an urgent call for accelerated action and renewed commitment if the 2030 Agenda is to be achieved.  More substantively, the unique role played by universities in producing research, data and innovative development solutions to tackle the interconnected social, economic and environmental challenges faced by societies across the globe, was underscored.  Indeed, universities as the drivers of knowledge, skills and innovation, are pivotal to nurturing the human and social capital upon which the success of the 2030 development agenda rests. To achieve this, partnerships with purpose and action need to be activated and sustained.  Against this backdrop, the SUNY-UWI Center for Leadership and Sustainable Development (CLSD) is hosting a Symposium entitled Global Partnerships for Climate Action on Friday 20th September 2019 (9am -1pm) at the SUNY Global Center in New York. This event will highlight how development partners are collaborating with universities to strengthen the interface between knowledge, policy and practice; how research is being translated into climate innovations and how research communication and advocacy are helping to generate much-needed development impact at the grassroots level.  This exchange between academia and development partners will also emphasize targeted areas for action, which are evidence-informed and demand-driven. Be part of this important conversation that will shape what we understand by Climate Action and how it is executed in practice!
