Event description

Description

Around the world, the 2030 Agenda has helped catalyze and support a wide range of innovative, grassroots-led work around SDG16+ with a variety of civil society actors. While the actions and commitments of civil society at the national level are often overlooked in global-level discussions, the 2019 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) provides a unique opportunity to bring civil society from a wide range of contexts together to showcase best practices and innovative initiatives supporting SDG16+ implementation, and a chance to explore opportunities for further civil society collaboration at all levels around SDG16+ going forward.

Saferworld, TAP Network and International Peace Institute (IPI) along with eight campaign partners launched the Voices of SDG16+: Stories for Global Action campaign collecting stories of grassroots efforts and initiatives from around the world that are implementing the SDG16+ targets. The civil society participants hail from Afghanistan, Cameroon, Canada, Guatemala, India, Kenya, Nepal, Philippines, Somaliland, Uganda, and Yemen, and were selected from well over 200 videos of local leaders and changemakers around the world working to put the 2030 Agenda and its commitment to peace, justice and inclusion into action.

In this event we will showcase the stories of the campaign peace actors, who will share their innovative work on access to justice, women’s political participation, youth peacebuilding, non-violent education and inclusive decision-making.
