SDG Flag Day 2022

With great pleasure, we invite you to participate in the third edition of the SDG Flag Campaign taking place on the 23rd of September 2022.

On the 23rd, it will be seven years since the world embraced the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 17 goals that guide us towards a more inclusive, just and sustainable society by 2030. The SDG’s are vital for a recovery that leads to greener, more inclusive economies, and stronger, more resilient societies. By participating in the SDG Flag campaign, you will raise awareness and express your commitment towards the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda.

Partners who have joined Global Compact NL since August 2021 will receive this SDG flag as a gift to be used on your HQ. Partners who have already participated in previous years are asked to participate again and possibly expand the campaign to other offices in The Netherlands or abroad. By raising the flag at company offices abroad, companies can show their commitment to the SDGs on a national and international level. If you are enthusiastic about this you can order your SDG flags here.

This year we are taking it up a level, and we invite you to participate in the Raise the SDG Flag Challenge in collaboration with AWorld, the official app in support of the UN ACTNOW campaign. AWorld is a mobile application that encourages individual action by educating, engaging, measuring and rewarding users. The challenge is open to any and everyone, and we encourage you to get your colleagues, local organisations and friends involved. Further instructions can be found at the link below.

Besides the physical visibility of all these flags, we strive for a strong virtual presence; therefore we ask that you use the hashtags #togetherfortheSDGs and #samenvoordeSDGs. More information on the campaign can be found here: SDG Flag Campaign 2022 or you can contact our SDG campaign manager Gabi Aubin via aubin@gcnetherlands.nl.
