SDG Media Zone

The SDG Media Zone

A live format of interviews, panel discussions and other digital content — seeks to create, connect, and highlight initiatives by the global community to advance the Sustainable Development Goals.

Since 2016, the SDG Media Zone has been one of the main features of the UN General Assembly high-level week, bringing together UN Member States, content creators, influencers, activists and media partners to highlight actions and solutions in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. Organized by the UN Department of Global Communications, in collaboration with the PVBLIC Foundation, the SDG Media Zone takes the conversation on advancing the 2030 Agenda out of the policy sphere and into the public discourse through impactful in-depth interviews, panel discussions and Ted-style talks.

SDG Media Zone, 17-29 September 2020

Science, Solutions and Solidarity to Transform our World 

This General Assembly, as the United Nations marks its 75th anniversary as well as five years since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement for Climate Change, the SDG Media Zone, a prominent feature and platform for progress and action during major international conferences, focuses on the power of science, solutions and solidarity—as seen through the vision of global leaders and experts at the forefront of global crises and efforts to build back better.

As the world responds and recovers from the COVID-19 crisis, the SDG Media Zone, taking place throughout the high-level period, looks at some of the most defining issues of today—the impact of COVID-19 on people’s lives and livelihoods, the development and availability of vaccine/s against the virus, misinformation and myths about science and medicine, gender equality since the adoption of the landmark Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action, and the urgent need to protect the world’s diminishing biodiversity. 

Check out the SDG Media Zone programme and stay tuned for conversations that matter. 

The SDG Media Zone is organized by the UN Department of Global Communications, in collaboration with the PVBLIC Foundation.
