About

During Ideagen's “17 Days of Sustainability”, highlighting one goal of the U.N. SDGs per day, Ideagen will showcase how the world’s leading organizations are addressing global sustainability. 

 

A key highlight during the 17 Days of Sustainability will include a spotlight on Global Goal 5, Gender Equality, during Ideagen's Annual Empowering Women & Girls Summit on October 11, and Goal 17, Partnerships for the Goals, during our Annual Global Partnerships Summit on October 27. 

What are the UN SDGs?

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals was an initiative put forth by the United Nations and ratified by all 193 member countries in 2015 with the goal to achieve global sustainability by 2030. 

“It is a roadmap to ending global poverty, building a life of dignity for all and leaving no one behind. It is also a clarion call to work in partnership and intensify efforts to share prosperity, empower people’s livelihoods, ensure peace and heal our planet for the benefit of this and future generations,” underscored UN Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki-moon.
