As United Nations staff members, we dedicate our careers to improving the lives of others around the world. The adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, with its core set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are the UN's blueprint for achieving a happier and healthier world by 2030. But how do we manifest these goals in our own lives?

The Be the Change initiative provides an opportunity for us to better "walk the talk" when it comes to the SDGs. Special events will take place at UN Headquarters in New York throughout the year, with the main event being the Be the Change weeklong challenge, coming 4-8 June 2018. Visit our website for more info:

Not in New York? Please contact Francyne Harrigan,, or Ariel Alexovich, of DPI to find out how you can get the Handbook to plan your own Be the Change event where you are.

Thanks for joining us!
