World leaders urged to reinforce commitments to implement #Agenda 2030 & SDGs

Heads of States and Governments should move to strengthen actions for Agenda 2030 implementation after leaving UNGA71 debates in New York.

Campaign coincides with 71st UN General Assembly

Together 2030, a global coalition of civil society organizations has launched aTwitter mobilization campaign to push for stronger and inclusive commitments in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
A communication from Together 2030 Secretariat to her membership notes that the September 20-30 campaign coincides with the 71st High Level Segment of the UN General Assembly which will bring together Heads of State and Government. According to the secretariat, “This is a strategic time for governments to report on how they are implementing the 2030 Agenda and working towards achieving the SDGs at the national level”
The theme for the 71st UN General Assembly is “The Sustainable Development Goals: a universal push to transform our world” and Together 2030 is calling on the world leaders in attendance to show the world the actions their respective countries have taken so far under their commitment to fully implement the SDGs.

Current status of SDGs

The five days twitter campaign will call “upon Head of State/Government to deliver statements outlining the status of the SDGs in their respective countries” To participate in the campaign, members are expected to share daily tweets as proposed by Together 2030 from September 19-23.
Campaign participants will then address the tweets to their country’s Head of State/Government and or Permanent Mission in New York asking them to be bold on commitments related to the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs in their statements at the UN General Assembly. Read more.....
