The SDG Action Day is a yearly event that takes place on or around September 25, which is the birthday of the SDGs – making it the Dutch event on the Sustainable Development Goals. The aim is to give participants insight into where we are standing with the SDGs, which goals still require more attention, and how we can take steps to finally meet these goals.
On the 25th of September, local partners of SDG the Netherlands will organise activities all around the Netherlands. The Hague Humanity Hub, being one of the SDG Houses, will also participate by creating a platform to show how our community members are contributing to the SDGs. Our event: ‘from the Netherlands with love’ will take place in the afternoon, from 14:00-15:30!
SDG ACTION DAY AT THE HAGUE HUMANITY HUB
The Humanity Hub has published an SDG community map showcasing the wide variety of SDGs our member organisations are working on. We used this map as a starting point and selected the 4 SDG’s that our community members are contributing most to:
SDG 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
SDG 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions.
SDG 17: Partnerships for the goal
This SDG Action Day will be a very fun and informal event, with a lot of room for interaction and, of course, actions! The participating organisations will give presentations on specific topics/problems related to the SDGs that they are struggling with or could use some advice on. As such, you will have an advisory role and thus a real ‘action‘ in the SDG Action Day!
The organizations that will participate in the SDG Action Day are the following: The International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) and UN Youth Impact, but more exciting organisations will soon be announced!
The target audience for this day are young people; students; young professionals or other interested youth, but other people interested in the event are also very welcome to join!
