Voices of SDG16+ 2021 HLPF Side-Event

Resilient Recovery through Local Action on SDG16+

In the context of the 2021 United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, this third edition of the Voices of SDG16+ : Stories for Global Action video campaign will feature local civil society voices from around the world to showcase how their work on SDG16+ is contributing to resilient recovery from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to showcasing stellar contributions from civil society, this virtual side-event during HLPF 2021 will also provide an opportunity to engage with the community of local voices of SDG16+. The Voices of SDG16+, started in 2019, provides a unique and dynamic opportunity to call for accelerated action and increased awareness on the work of local civil society partners in this domain. Featured videos will exemplify how the global goal towards more peaceful, just and inclusive societies is being implemented and is invaluable in positively impacting people’s lives – despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
