#USAforSDGs

 Social Media Toolkit

Since the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, U.S. communities have made this global framework a local agenda. The pandemic has shown us that the SDGs are more critical than ever, including in the U.S. Meeting the SDGs requires dedicated action from all sectors, and this is happening across the country. Local governments, businesses, students, and foundations are bringing the SDGs home by implementing the SDGs in their communities.

At the UN Foundation, we’re committed to supporting this cross-sector engagement and furthering this important work by inspiring, activating, and supporting voices across America as we push toward sustainability and equity for all.

We are excited to work on American Leadership on the SDGs, in partnership with the Center for Sustainable Development at the Brookings Institution. We ask leaders and influencers like you to join us by sharing these stories of American innovation and action, and adding your own voice to this important conversation.

How to use this toolkit

Join us on social media using #USAforSDGs and use the provided graphics and social posts to:

  • Amplify. Lift up the work of people across the U.S. who are driving progress on the SDGs in their own communities.
  • Educate. Ensure your network has the tools to use the SDGs as the roadmap to a sustainable and equitable future.
  • Share. Show the work you are doing to drive progress towards the SDGs alongside the collective efforts we showcase, by adding #USAforSDGs to your posts.

 

Key Messages

  • The SDGs provide us with a common language to understand and address our greatest challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and inequalities.
  • Across America, communities are already taking local action for global solutions. People of all ages, backgrounds, professions, and beliefs are bringing the SDGs home.
  • As we respond to and recover from the pandemic and work to build more inclusive, resilient societies, we must remember that “business as usual” is not our path forward. The SDGs are our roadmap to emerge stronger than before, including in the United States.
