Global Festival of Ideas for Sustainable Development (Bonn 2017) – Opening Plenary
The UN SDG Action Campaign is an Initiative of the Secretary General, with the mission of ensuring that everyone has the support, encouragement and capability to advocate and act to ensure the SDG agenda is brought to life. It recognises and celebrates the innovators, conveners and break-through actors who are transforming lives, tackling trade-offs and generating practical solutions to some of the world’s most intractable development problems.
The 2017 Global Festival of Ideas for Sustainable Development will be the inaugural annual event to convene these actors and advocates, to ensure they have the innovative tools and approaches to accomplish their missions. Each year the event will be designed to meet the needs of this dynamic global community of change-makers.
