SDG Impact Awards
The SDG Impact Awards Committee is a nonprofit independent sustainability organization whose membership supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Our international mission is to increase public and private sector engagement, awareness and support of the SDGs through competition that:
- engages the general public
- provides a platform for corporations to share their humanitarian efforts with a broader audience
- recognizes the work of nonprofits, governments, and individuals of almost all ages
The SDG Impact Awards Committee membership is composed of members drawn from the NGO, Academic and Civil Society communities. Judging is by popular vote and independent judges in the fields impacted by the SDGs.
SDG Impact Awards & Gala (SDGIA)
To increase awareness, support and public engagement surrounding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our purpose is to elevate the SDG achievement rate through program and project coordination, as well as enhanced partnership development.
Online Peer to Peer Project Competition
SDGIA Contributors ranging from middle schools to universities, individuals to global corporations, and all the members of the UN community will be invited to post their projects on the SDG Impact Awards website. SDGIA contributors are also encouraged to invite their constituents and contacts to vote for their and other posted projects that they want to support. Voters will be incentivized by the opportunity to win valuable Instant Win prizes with each vote.
Projects receiving the most votes in their size/project category will win a Peopleâ€™s Vote SDG Impact Award. Judges will separately select winning projects based on Impact.
An ongoing University team competition with cash awards will continue beyond the competition dates, engaging the public, much like a reality TV show, with weekly video updates.
