Application calls for UN Sustainable Development Goals Action Awards 2020
Every year, the UN Sustainable Development Goals Action Awards recognize individuals, civil society organizations, subnational governments, foundations, networks, and private sector leaders who are advancing the global movement for the SDGs in the most transformative, impactful and innovative ways. Particularly, the 2020 UN Sustainable Development Goals Action Awards are seeking initiatives from across the globe that MOBILIZE people to take action, CONNECT stakeholders to accelerate progress and INSPIRE transformation for sustainable development.
Winners will get an invitation to join and feature their work at a special UN Sustainable Development Goals Action Awards Ceremony held at UN Headquarters in New York City around the High-Level Opening of the UN General Assembly in September. In addition to that, the winners will be recognized as SDG Action partners and their work will be featured throughout the year to raise their visibility and share their stories with the SDG community.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals Action Awards are open to everyone. However, the initiatives led by UN entities and national governments will be eligible for honorable mentions only. In addition to that, the initiatives that have been closely co-developed with the UN SDG Action Campaign or as part of a signed partnership agreement with the UN SDG Action Campaign are not eligible. If the candidates are unsure about the eligibility then they must contact the organizer. Organizations can enter into multiple categories if each entry represents a different initiative. In addition to that, candidates can choose to tell their stories in their own language.
