ACCELERATION ACTIONS

FOR JUSTICE FOR ALL

To deliver justice for all by 2030, in a world where billions of people are not yet able to obtain justice, we need to move from words to action now.

We possess the tools, knowledge and strategies needed to accelerate progress and the Justice for All report sets out an agenda for action.

Ahead of the SDG Summit on 24 and 25 September in New York, we encourage all countries and organizations to register acceleration actions for Justice for All.

The United Nations has created a global registry for SDG acceleration actions.

 

Registration is open now:
