What is the United Nations Global Goals Jam?

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030 (SDG). These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. UN Global Goals Jam is a two-day event designed to help individuals and businesses to get engaged in designing the 2030 together. It takes place worldwide in 70 different locations, and brings positive change one step at a time. Each year the UN Global Goals Jam focuses on 5 goals out of the 17.
