Large Heading


Who ever said that sustainability can't be fun?  Events are a fantastic way to bring people together to have fun and experience first hand what it feels like to be part of a community with shared, common interests.  Music, sports, arts and sciences competitions, festivals, concerts and exhibitions are fantastic tools for promoting the SDG's, celebrating progress and bringing people together.  Our Global SDG Cities Competition is the foundation upon which UNGSII's annual events program is built. The program kicks-off in 2019.  Stay tuned here for more details.
