About SDG A&A Week

Join in the Action! SDG Action & Awareness Week 2023 will be held March 6-March 10, 2023. 

The University Global Coalition, in partnership with the State University of New York, is proud to declare March 6-10, 2023 UN Sustainable Development Goals Action and Awareness Week. The purpose of this week is to promote awareness of the SDGs among students, faculty, and staff in higher education and inspire them to take action in furtherance of the goals on their campuses and in their local community. We invite participants to plan and host a virtual SDG-focused event for the UGC global calendar, attend an event, or plan events on their own campuses.
