SDG Action and Awareness Week

The University Global Coalition, in partnership with the State University of New York, is proud to declare February 28 – March 4, 2022 UN Sustainable Development Goals Action and Awareness Week. The purpose of this week is to promote awareness of the SDGs among students in higher education and inspire them to take action in furtherance of the goals on their campuses and in their local community.

As part of SDG Action and Awareness Week, a committee will collect submissions of events and activities taking place during Action and Awareness Week from universities across the globe. These submissions will be accessible in our calendar of events, complete with links on how to participate (coming soon). Plans are also in the works to conduct a discussion-based webinar and publish resources to help universities wishing to hold SDG Action and Awareness events of their own.

To sign up to host an event during SDG Action and Awareness Week, fill out the form here. Events must be SDG-related, free of charge to attend, and open to all.

More information coming soon!
