Global Goals with the Pankhurst Trust

Each September while world leaders gather at the high-level opening of the United Nations General Assembly, thousands of organizations from civil society, youth groups, national and local governments, institutions, businesses and individuals all across the world take part in the Global Week to #Act4SDGs.

Championing SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and SDG 10 (Reduce Inequalities) The Zebra Partnership and The People’s Hub hosted by Chancellors Hotel will join the international mobilisation around the 4th anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This will help to amplify, connect and map SDG actions and send a strong message that people and organisations everywhere are helping to make the SDGs a reality and that they need leaders to stand behind their commitment to the goals.
