The UN SDG Media Zone convenes Government leaders, CEOs, UN heads, activists, influencers and entrepreneurs for short panel discussions on topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals broadcasted live on UN Web TV to a global audience. Using the power and reach of social media, the SDG Media Zone seeks to take important conversations out of the policy sphere bubble of exclusive high-profile events and into the public domain by engaging a global online audience.
To mark its 20th anniversary, the UN Global Compact in partnership with the UN Department of Global Communications, will bring the SDG Media Zone to Davos for the first time during the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting. Topics to be discussed include principled business, climate action, gender equality, sustainable finance, global health, employee purpose and many more issues directly related to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which was unanimously agreed by 193 UN member states in September 2015.
The UN SDG Media Zone programme in Davos will run from Tuesday 21 January to Thursday 23 January at Promenade 80 (next to Equality Lounge and opposite the Belvedere Hotel, in the Panorama Hotel Restaurant). A typical session in the SDG Media Zone lasts 15–20 minutes and is shared widely on social media using the #SDGLive hashtag.
