The Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development is a ground-breaking annual event powered by the UN SDG Action Campaign with the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The Festival will bring together the global community taking action to make the Sustainable Development Goals a reality. It will recognize and celebrate the innovators, conveners and breakthrough actors who are transforming lives, tackling trade-offs and generating practical solutions to some of the world’s most intractable development problems.
Taking place in Bonn each year, the Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development provides a dynamic and interactive space to showcase the latest innovations, tools and approaches to SDG implementation. The Festival will bring together a wide array of organizations and individuals – spanning multiple sectors and regions – to build synergies amongst different constituencies, increase mutual understanding, and approach problems and solutions from multiple angles.
USC is going to host a panel about "Cities effectively addressing the SDGs".
