Mission and objectives

The United Nations SDG Action Campaign is a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General administered by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and mandated to support the UN system-wide and the Member States on advocacy and public engagement in the SDG implementation. Building on innovative and impactful engagement techniques deployed since 2002, the UN SDG Action Campaign intends to create awareness about the 2030 Agenda, empower and inspire people across the world to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while generating political will, and help make the Goals attainable by 2030.


The UN SDG Action Campaign catalyses advocacy and engagement, bringing together diverse actors and partners. Through compelling, creative SDG outreach and communications strategies, the UN SDG Action Campaign supports and serves UN Member States and the UN system. It links organizations from civil society, local governments, think tanks, the arts and culture, the media, and the business world. It mobilizes individuals to champion the SDGs in homes, communities and beyond. With the pandemic, the Ukrainian war and climate, economic and social disruptions sweeping the globe, 2022 is a pivotal year for transformational changes. This is a once in a generation opportunity to reset and to create a better future. This September, millions of people across the world will join together, while world leaders meet at the UN General Assembly, to make this a turning point for people and the planet. The Global Week to #ActforSDGs is a global call to people and organizations everywhere in the world to take actions for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We want to shine a spotlight on the incredible and exciting initiatives happening across the world, especially on the themes of climate action, justice and peace – the three themes of the 2022 Global Week to #Act4SDGs.
