The second Sustainable Development Goals Moment (SDG Moment) of the Decade of Action will take place as a virtual, day-long event on Monday, 20 September 2021, prior to the opening of the 76th UN General Assembly's general debate.
The annual SDG Moment aims to provide a snapshot of progress, highlight actions that show change is possible, and advance the transformations needed to achieve the 2030 Agenda. It was created by the political declaration adopted at the first SDG Summit in 2019, which mandated the Secretary-General to convene the event as part of every high-level week of the UNGA from 2020 to 2030.
The first SDG Moment was a virtual half-day event in September 2020 and brought together 21 Heads of State and Government.
Funding for our work on the SDG Moment 2021 was provided by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety of Germany (BMU).
