Open letter from the SDG Advocates

On 22 September, the SDG Advocates have released an open letter urging everyone to co-own the responsibility of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

The letter states that the 17 SDGs “have the potential to make us the first generation to put an end to extreme poverty, the most determined generation to fight inequality and the last generation to be threatened by the effects of climate change.”

The Advocates also urge everyone to “take the substantial and specific actions required to create a better world for all.”

The UN SDG Action Campaign, with the support of Mediacom, secured full page adverts in the Economist European edition (22 October issue) and the Financial Times UK edition (7 October) to publicize the letter, to encourage engagement of all stakeholders in the agenda.
