Held in association with the United Nations on 9th and 10th March, 2021, the event explored the innovative solutions and concrete actions needed to turn the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - a blueprint to eradicate poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change by 2030 – into reality.

Highlighting the UAE’s commitment to the goals and its convening power to galvanize global action, Expo Talks: Global Goals, available on-demand, outlined why the world needs urgent progress on the SDGs, why everyone must be involved, and how Expo 2020 will bring the SDGs to life across its entire visitor experience.

The expo is already supporting several innovative, on-the-ground projects that are working to achieving the SDGs. Under the theme "Small Steps, Big Leaps: Simple Solutions for Sustainable Impact". The Global Best Practice Program will spotlight numerous projects over the 182 days of the expo that localize the SDGs and can be adapted, replicated, and scaled for enhanced global impact.
