The UN SDG Action Challenge Awards

In order to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda, innovators, mobilizers, connectors, storytellers, communicators, visualizers and includers are invited to submit their applications for the UN SDG Action Challenge Awards from 1 December 2017 to15 January 2018.

The aim of this challenge is to find the change-makers of today and celebrate their achievements with the world. Members of the global SDG community are invited to enter their projects, initiatives, networks and people for the chance to win a UN SDG Action Challenge Award at the UN SDG Action Challenge Awards Ceremony on 21 March 2018 during the Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development in Bonn, Germany (21-23 March 2018). 

Award winners will also be invited to offer practical, hands-on workshop sessions at the Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development to share their skills with other participants. The Awards are open to individuals, civil society organizations, local governments and others who are taking actions to advance the 2030 Agenda.

Submissions will be reviewed by expert group panels, with an additional award – the People’s Choice Award, being selected by attendees at the Festival in advance of the awards ceremony. You can find out more about the competition here.
