Sustainable Development Goals in Action

Driving Progress Towards 2030

In September 2015, 193 United Nations (UN) Member States and world leaders gathered in New York at the UN Sustainable Development Summit to endorse the set of new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the next 15 years. The scope and ambition of the SDGs are greater than anything that the international community has ever attempted before, and rightly so. The SDGs aim to transform our world and leave no one behind, while also ensuring the future of our planet. The United Arab Emirates activated the Sustainable Development Goals with a first of its kind and dedicated event at the World Government Summit Organization, SDGs in Action. Fast-forwarding 6 years since its inaugural event, the SDGs in Action 2022 will take place at the world’s greatest show, Expo 2020 - Dubai, during the Global Goals thematic week. SDGs in Action 2022, themed ‘Decade of Action: Accelerate SDG Implementation’ will enhance the collaboration of interdisciplinary networks to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
