Dear friends and colleagues!
We invite you to participate in the 2020 Global Week to Act for Sustainable Development Goals
, taking place 18th - 26th September 2020
, and apply for microgrants for your civic initiative in the Russian regions.
The Global Week to Act for SDGs is a global civil society initiative uniting people across the world. The aim is to mobilize people to take individual and collective action and to support the progress towards the Agenda 2030, the universal plan to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. This year, three main directions for action have been identified:
- Communicate: Raise awareness of SDG issues and get informed
- Advocate: Raise your voice and hold leaders to account
- Activate: Organize and (online) event and mobilize your community to take direct action for the goals
We, the Coalition for Sustainable Development of Russia, want to encourage “Activate” by supporting local civic initiatives to implement the SDGs in Russia with microgrants from 200 EUR to 500 EUR.
