Event industry professionals across the globe are being urged to take part in a vital initiative ahead of UN program;

Contribute to the ‘Engaging the global event industry with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals’ ahead of the UN Sustainable Development Summit on 25-27 September in New York.

An online survey, which went  live on 1 August http://survey.positiveimpactevents.com will provide anyone working in the meetings and events industry the ability to contribute opinions and commitments to how the global event industry could achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The survey has been created as part of the ‘My World Global Citizen Survey’ to bring people’s voices into official debates about the SDGs and will be available in 22 languages.

Positive Impact, a global not-for-profit which exists to engage, educate and collaborate to create a sustainable event industry, will analyse all survey responses and create content for an ‘Acceleration Commitment’ which will identify key action items to take to create a sustainable event industry. The report will be submitted to the United Nations as part of their call for commitments to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals which will be discussed at the summit in New York in September.

Event technology provider Cvent (and ESSA Member) is one of the partners supporting the creation of an acceleration commitment, which will communicate to the United Nations how engaging the event industry could lead to achieving the sustainable development goals by 2030.

Heads of state and government will gather at the United Nations Headquarters in New York to progress the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Surveys completed before 1 September will be used to form an ‘acceleration action’ which will be shared with the United Nations.
