The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide an agenda for transforming the world to meet the challenges of ending poverty, enhancing social inclusion, environmental sustainability, peace, good governance and economic prosperity for all countries and peoples.

The organising committee are pleased to invite you to join this national, multi-sector Summit on the Sustainable Development Goals – together we are accepting the challenge for our sphere of influence in New Zealand.

The need for urgency and greater action to progress sustainable development are recognised in the 2019 Summit’s theme of Accelerated action, together.

The purpose of the Summit is to bring together people from all sectors to develop and commit to positive action and accountability on the critical SDGs within our broader spheres of influence.

We will do this by providing a platform for recognising, sharing and combining knowledge and skills, and seeking to weave together many threads of accelerated action through preparatory work, keynote addresses, panel discussion and action planning.

The summit outcomes will be:

  • Participants with increased knowledge, skills and tools to act and influence;
  • Enhanced commitment and momentum for accelerated action, together beyond the Summit;
  • Expansion of key partnerships to deliver accelerated action, and
  • An electronic record of the keynote addresses and panel discussions, and the accelerated action plans developed and agreed to within the summit and contributed to by all those who join in.
