In the margins of the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the Journalists and Writers Foundation (JWF) and its 36 Global Partners from 24 countries are organizing the hybrid SDGs Conference 2023 to convene world leaders, diplomats, civil society members, journalists, and academics to discuss contemporary impediments for the timely and effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDGs Conference 2023, formerly known as the UNGA Conference, is the flagship event of the Journalists and Writers Foundation, creating a platform for diverse stakeholders to discuss the Global Agenda 2030, offer innovative solutions, strategies, and policy recommendations to advance the culture of peace, human rights, and sustainable development. As 2023 marks the 8th annual SDGs Conference, this global event gathered over 150 high-level speakers across the globe forming an interdisciplinary group of distinguished panelists to discuss a particular set of agenda over three panel sessions and propose a framework for action for the full and effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
As a result of the diligent review of the 2022-2023 agenda items and priority working areas of diverse UN agencies and offices, as well as world-renowned international summits, the SDGs Conference 2023 will address:
(1) Building a New Momentum Towards the 2030 Deadline for the SDGs,
(2) Press Freedom as an Instrument to Defend Human Rights for All, and
(3) Widening Gap between Erosion of Democracy and Rise of Autocracy.
in the margins of the UNGA 78th Session on Wednesday, 20 September 2023 from 10 am to 4 pm.
