The Global SDG Awards 2020: Awards To Transfrom Our World

Geschreven op 18-9-2019 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Int. Samenwerking Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

25 March 2021: The 2020 SDG Action Awards Ceremony, which took place on 25 March as a part of the fifth SDG Global Festival of Action, highlighted nine inspiring finalist initiatives, of which three were announced as winners during the live ceremony.

The Awards, a signature programme of the UN SDG Action Campaign, seeks to highlight initiatives which Mobilize, Inspire and Connect, three categories that can help spur citizen engagement and affect positive change.

Marina Ponti, Global Director of the UN SDG Action Campaign, noted in her welcoming speech that not even the current health crisis could hold these initiatives back. “They show how they’ve turned things around using creativity, data, communication and accountability. And — more importantly — through pride, passion and perseverance.”

The Awards recognize individuals and organizations who take action while building coalitions across communities, as well as those who shift behaviours and policies towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and those who increase progress on the Goals whilst strengthening dialogue and trust between people and institutions at all levels.

The open call for submission received over 2,000 initiatives submitted to the three application categories from 140+ countries. Leading up to the live ceremony, 21 judges from across sectors and countries reviewed the entries submitted, assessing overall impact and approach, and gauging the potential for the initiatives to be replicated and scaled up.

Lysa John, Secretary General of CIVICUS, presented the award in the Mobilize category to The Sexual Harassment Project represented by Funmi Ayeni. By targeting policy makers and mobilizing students, the project empowers students — the most vulnerable group impacted by campus sexual harassment in Nigeria — to take action. Having lobbied legislators to push a sexual harassment bill, the initiative has the potential for broader, sustainable and long-lasting impact.

Immersive Production Specialist and MY World 360° Creator, Charles Muchiri presented the Inspire Award to Signs TV, an initiative which advocates for inclusive communication while building cultural bridges and removing barriers. Not only is Signs TV on the forefront of supplying sign interpretation, but 60% of their staff consists of persons with disabilities, which ensures that everything they do is inclusive.

Ambassador Giorgio Marrapodi, Director General for Development and Cooperation with Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, handed out the Connect award to Dune Ives of NextWave Plastics. By creating the first ever global network targeting multinational supply chains to keep plastic out of the ocean, the initiative’s members have prevented 1,300+ metric tons of plastic from entering the ocean in just two years.

18 September 2019: The Global SDG Awards is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Competition, which launches today in advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York, NY.

The awards celebrate private-sector leadership & honor outstanding business contributions to the UN 2030 Agenda, known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals.

The Global SDG Awards provides a unique opportunity for organizations to compete head-to-head with other leading corporate citizens in 17 award categories. Companies from around the world are invited to prepare & submit applications online in one of twelve languages, including: Arabic, Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Applications for each category will be featured on the Global SDG Awards website, shared via social media (+40,000 active followers) and promoted by a network of media partners. 2019 Winners will also receive a custom, planet-friendly trophy designed by Rivanna Natural Designs – a Certified B Corporation.

The awards’ peer-reviewed methodology incorporates both qualitative and quantitative aspects, including: SDG performance indicators, financial metrics, program expansion plans and examples of stakeholder impact. The competition will be evaluated by an expert panel of +80 judges, representing sustainability leadership viewpoints from 18 countries across 6 continents.

Submissions for the 2019 Global SDG Awards will be accepted until Friday December 6th, 2019 at 12:00 PM EST. Applications received before October 4th will receive $100 OFF (Early Bird Rates).

The Global SDG Awards is the international sustainability competition that honors outstanding business contributions to the UN SDGs and Global Goals. The awards were designed to accelerate private-sector SDG engagement through competition. Our Mission is to create a race-to-the-top and to inspire others with examples of next generation sustainability leadership. The Global SDG Awards is proud to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

    SDG Global Festival of Action 2021

    The SDG Action global community’s annual meeting place is returning, bigger and bolder than ever from 25-26 March 2021! No longer confined by a physical location, the SDG Global Festival of Action will meet you wherever you are in a new virtual space.

    Once more the SDG Global Festival of Action will be designed BY and FOR the SDG Action Community.

    We listen to our community and we’ve been impressed and inspired by the incredible ideas and solutions that we’ve learned about through various open calls and campaign initiatives.

    Rather than conducting a new open call, the 2021 SDG Global Festival of Action will be curated from some of the most relevant, impactful and bold proposals we’ve seen so far that align with the current context.

    We see the 2021 edition as the opportunity to elevate the most transformative and timely work that has been building from across the global SDG Action community to together, continue to mobilize, connect and inspire action for people and for the planet.
