/MONTSAME/. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets, signed onto
by leaders around the world including Mongolia, represent aspirations to end
poverty and hunger, protect the planet, promote justice, eliminate disparities
and inequalities, and bring prosperity by 2030. Mongolia is one of the early
adopters of the SDGs. In line with these global goals, the Parliament of
Mongolia adopted its Vision-2050, a strategic policy document on the country’s
development priorities in the years to come.

Achievement of the
2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a milestone in achieving Vision
2050. To achieve this agenda, Mongolia must take more ambitious actions to
accelerate the implementation of the SDGs.

SDGs are everyone’s business. These
goals are to be achieved by all concerted and collective efforts by all
stakeholders, including the Government, development partners, private sector,
academia, civil society and last, but not least, by individual citizens.

For this
purpose, this campaign “SDG Open Day”, the UN Mongolia, together with its key
partners, proposes to engage with the Mongolian communities, especially the
private sector, and the public in Ulaanbaatar city, in a range of activities
and events geared towards advocating and promoting SDGs while showcasing and
acknowledging good works and significant progress thus far towards SDGs and to
inspire sustainable behaviours and lifestyle and mobilize more commitment from
businesses, communities and the wider public to the promotion of SDGs in

Moreover, this
campaign will also give space and a platform to acknowledge and commitment of
the Mongolian stakeholders to the promotion and implementation of the SDGs,
showcasing their best practices and substantial contributions they have made
towards solving some of the pressing issues Mongolian communities face.

The campaign
will aim to engage with at least 5000 people in person at the event and more
than 100,000 people through a social media campaign. Around 100 organizations
and entities will be selected to showcase their best practices and
sustainability products based on the selection criteria to be elaborated.

In a nutshell,
the campaign will aim to shift the gear from building awareness to accelerating
the implementation of the SDGs to achieve the Agenda by 2030.
