From September 14th to 30th September, the Hellenic Platform for Development coordinated the largest raising awareness campaign in Greece for the Global Goals, on the occasion of the completion of the three years since their adoption and within the framework of the project Make Europe Sustainable for All.

More than 360,000 citizens were informed about the Global Goals through the campaign #17days17goalsgr, involving 41 civil society organizations, institutions and schools, that implemented 34 actions, among others: children’s workshops, theatrical events, public events, cinema nights, informative workshops, discussions and exhibitions, promoting ideas to integrate the Goals into our everyday lives and local changes in 9 cities in Greece: Athens, Veria, Thessaloniki, Kalamata, Katerini, Larissa, Rhodes, Serres and Chalkidiki.

The campaign #17days17goalsgr of the Hellenic Platform was also the largest part of actions in Greece in the context of the global campaign #Act4SDGs culminating on 25 September at GA of UN in New York.
