The story behind the movement
ABOUT SUSTAINRWORLD DAY
In September of 2015, the United Nations convened world leaders at a summit in New York City to make history. All 193 members of the United Nations agreed on and committed to working together to fulfill seventeen global goals that serve as a blueprint and roadmap for the entire planet. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide the framework for humanity to work together from 2015-2030 in addressing the world’s most pressing challenges, such as climate change and sustainable energy, extreme poverty, health, education, gender equality, drinkable water, economic growth, etc.
With this vision in mind we have forged a new alliance – that includes the world’s largest advertising and activation agency, and a leading global sustainable business convener to the most prominent brands on the planet –to create a long-term strategy to drive awareness (our “The Seventeen” campaign– where individual business leaders, influencers, and celebrities profess their commitment to the SDGs), catalyze engagement, and promote conscious capitalism and consumption in support of the SDGs.
SustainRWorld Day is a new, global initiative by HealRWorld in partnership with Sustainable Brands and the WPP agency, Geometry Global, working together with the PVBLIC Foundation designed to inspire a global movement and mark SustainRWorld Day to celebrate our measurable progress each year.
