Our two-day program was held in a dynamic virtual space with six different stages featuring plenary sessions, lightning talks, performances, exhibitions, and interactive workshops.
Meet our speakers, performers, exhibitors for the Global Festival of Action 2021.
The 28 interactive workshops and hands-on sessions provided space for participants to interact with and learn from expertise from across the SDG Action community. Together, this was the opportunity to dive into new approaches, models and methods for accelerating impact and mobilizing communities.
Throughout the event we showcased films and video art pieces from artists, creators and organisations from all sectors and regions using creativity to #TurnItAround for people and planet.
The Festival provoked debate and drive action around four cross cutting themes highlighting ideas, approaches and solutions, for climate action, poverty & inequality, gender equality, and inclusive systems and finance. We must make 2021 a turning point for people and planet!
