Event Summary

These days at the United Nations global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are being formulated. These SDGs will guide the use of the limited resources of planet Earth by humanity in a fair and responsible way with a long term and inter generational perspective.

It becomes more and more clear that United Nations and national governments can’t do the job alone.

New thinking is needed and a global multistakeholder partnership – a global action network – for achieving sustainable development is needed that includes everybody who makes decisions over the use of resources relevant for sustainable development goals.

Join us at this event to hear about concrete visions, concepts and outlines for campaigns that put global citizens (the drops that make the ocean) in the center of global governance and give global civil society, youth and cities a leadership role in future global partnership architecture for achieving sustainable development.

We are going to discuss with representatives of different major stakeholder groups (Science and Technology, Youth, Regional public authority, NGOs, Women, Indigenous People, ..), member states and UN system representatives how new approaches to social entrepreneurship, global citizenship ethics (Global Challenges Giving Pledge), games and music can be used to inspire and motivate people to get engaged in SDGs.

Hear about concrete social and technological innovations (GloCha System) and ambitious campaigns (MySDGs Global Youth Music Contest, 15/15/15, etc.) for youth led multistakeholder mass mobilization towards SDGs implementation.
