SDG Flag Day 25.9.2023

What is SDG Flag Day?

SDG Flag Day is a global flag campaign held on the anniversary of the UN Sustainable Development Goals on September 25.

September 25th 2023 marked the eighth anniversary of the adoption of the UN Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. At the core of the Agenda are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which guide global action on sustainable development until 2030.

We are at the halfway point of the Agenda 2030. Progress on the SDGs is off-track and time is running out.

Now is the time to increase the momentum to implement the SDGs and show our commitment to this global universal agenda. Whole society plays an important role in the implementation of the SDGs. 

By raising the SDG Flag on September 25th 2023 you show your commitment to the SDGs and increase awareness of the Agenda 2030.

Thank you to all participants!

Sustainable Development Goals

The global work on sustainable development is guided by the Agenda 2030 adopted by all UN Member States. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets. The scale and ambition of the Agenda 2030 is unprecedented – the universal goals are for all countries and all stakeholders. They balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the social, the environmental, and the economic.

The SDGs offer a common language and a compass for solving the sustainability challenges. In addition to states, participation of local government, the private sector, civil society, and citizens is needed. All goals are closely interlinked: no goal and be pursued at the expense of another. Important principle is that no one is left behind.
