Voices of SDG16+: Local Actions for Global Solutions
2020 HLPF Side-Event
Join us for the sharing of stories under the theme “SDG16+ and COVID-19: Local Actions for Global Solutions”
Building on the resounding success of the 2019 Voices of SDG16+ campaign, this year’s video campaign asked individuals and partners around the world to share short videos showcasing how they are contributing to advancing SDG16+. Individuals and organizations from around the world have shared their “stories” of best practices and extraordinary efforts being undertaken towards SDG16+ at the national and local levels, particularly in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.
The top five selected storytellers with the most compelling videos will be showcased during this dedicated 2020 HLPF Side-Event, and participants will have an opportunity to discuss their submissions and stories further. The interactive, virtual event will also feature reflections from the winners of last year’s campaign.
WHEN: Wednesday, 15 July 2020
12:00 – 13:30 GMT | 8:00 – 9:30 EDT
