Hello from Tokyo. As many of you know, last month between the 16 – 25 September was this year’s Global Goals Week. This is a shared commitment between 170+ partners across civil society, business, academia, and the UN system to accelerate action on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). What did you do in your country? In Japan, there were events held throughout the country. In Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan, a large-scale event was held at 13 venues over nine days. With a vision to both raise awareness of the SDGs within the public, as well as the co-creation of opportunities to act, there was an impressive total of 24 separate programmes.
