Organized by the UN SDG Action Campaign, a special inter-agency initiative of the UN Secretary General, the UN SDG Action Awards programme aims to accelerate action towards the achievement of the goals by honouring creative, scalable and transformative initiatives that mobilize, inspire and connect individuals and organizations dedicated to realizing the 2030 Agenda. Since 2018, over 2750 applications from 142 countries have been received. For 2020 applications can be submitted until the 19th of July 2020 (previously the 25th of May 2020).

Winners will be invited to join and present their work at a special UN SDG Action Awards Ceremony held at the UN Headquarters in New York City. Moreover, they will be recognized as SDG Action partners and have the opportunity to prominently showcase their work throughout the year to raise visibility for their initiative and share their stories with the SDG Action community.
