Building Better Futures, Togethertest
In 2015 the world witnessed something historic – the United Nations unanimously ratified a bold and comprehensive 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or Global Goals. This vision and plan for a better future comes not just from the negotiating chambers of the UN, but from a far-reaching conversation that included millions of people worldwide.
Now, as the world takes bold steps to achieve the Goals, the United Nations Development Programme stands ready to lead the way – connecting countries to knowledge, experience, and resources they need to build better futures for themselves, their citizens, and the world.
As part of UNDP’s ongoing commitment to inclusivity and building on the tremendous momentum of the Global Goals, UNDP presents Digital Good, a first-of-its-kind digital platform to build a better future, together.
Digital Good is UNDP’s first public platform designed to promote public awareness of the Global Goals, engage and activate general public advocates on behalf of sustainable development, and provide new avenues of public support and funding for UNDP’s critical work. Digital Good gives fans and advocates of sustainable development the tools and tips to hold fundraising campaigns and help build awareness of the SDGs among their friends and families through fundraising events, sporting events, parties, and other special occasions.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU
Supported by a generous financial contribution from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Digital Good is inspired by the vigorous creativity of young Saudi Arabian citizens participating in the Saudi International Youth Dialogue Forums, a joint project between UNDP and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These forums were aimed at strengthening bilateral relations with a special focus on developing cooperation in the fields of communications and IT as well as exchange knowledge and expertise on youth-related issues. From these dialogues emerged a vision for a new digital communications technology platform to assist “people-to-people” in generating critical support and awareness for international development efforts.
