To accelerate engagement and action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General launched a new social media campaign, ‘Keeping the Promise for the SDGs’.
Keeping the Promise is a result of the collaboration between the UN Department of Global Communications and the UN Office for Partnerships (UN Partnerships).
This action-driven campaign calls on people to commit to what they believe in — be it ending discrimination, promoting girls' education, advocating for universal health coverage, cutting food waste or reducing their carbon footprint.
By focusing on three levels of engagement — international, local and individual — the campaign aims to:
- ensure greater leadership, more resources and smarter solutions for the SDGs,
- strengthen Governments’ commitments to the promises that were made at the adoption of the SDGs,
- mobilize constituencies to demand ambition, accountability and action from the grassroots up,
- create a sense of solidarity in achieving the SDGs.
As of today, more than 130,000 people across the globe have posted their SDG promise.
