UN SDG Action Awards Call for Applications and Nominations
21 March 2022
The SDG story is about what most people want: more inclusive, peaceful and sustainable societies, no later than 2030.
It is more important than ever to shine a spotlight on hope and togetherness — and on people making a difference everywhere — especially during this challenging moment we are currently facing. Old models have not delivered and we need new ones to fulfill the SDG promise of what most people want: more inclusive, peaceful and sustainable societies, no later than 2030.
That’s why the UN SDG Action Awards are calling for applications and nominations — for people and initiatives who are flipping the script and rethinking how we live and what progress and development look like.
The UN SDG Action Campaign remains hopeful that we can face current challenges in solidarity and flip division into togetherness, and apathy to action. It is time to react, reset, restart.
- We are looking for initiatives that inspire, mobilize and connect people to drive action towards a more sustainable future on a healthy planet.
- We are looking for individuals who are Changemakers that inspire and empower others through their actions. If you know any of these outstanding individuals, nominate them!
Applications will be reviewed against clear criteria, with winners being selected by a panel of prominent judges. Read all about the categories on our website: sdgactionawards.org.
Applications are open until 1 May 2022. Finalists and winners will be celebrated at a special event held in Bonn, Germany, during the UN General Assembly and the Global Week to #Act4SDGs in September and showcased on UN SDG Action Campaign channels throughout the year.
