In 2015, world governments signed historic agreements to push for a more just and sustainable world by 2030, via the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These inter-linked agendas intend to transform the world and set us on a path for a just transition.
On 24 and 25 September 2019 Heads of State will meet again in the SDG Summit to follow-up and comprehensively review progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event is the first UN summit on the SDGs since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda in September 2015.
At this critical turning point, civil society organisations, working together in key coalitions and movements such as SDG Watch Europe – of which SOLIDAR is an active member, and the global climate movement Fridays for Future, demand that they set out a much more ambitious roadmap for practical action.
This moment has the potential to foster irreversible momentum for greater accountability and enhanced ambition and action for the following years to deliver.
SOLIDAR strongly supports the Global Week of Action to act for SDGs, which also marks the 4th anniversary of the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and together with partners such as SDG Watch Europe, will take part in this joint mobilisation and mass action across movements and borders, claiming the rights to voice, equality, peace, climate and environmental justice.
