As an expression of their commitment to promoting voluntary action, accelerating sustainability, and empowering people to make change, AtKisson Group is planning to launch a new global website and initiative called 17Goals.

The purpose of the initiative is to make it easy for people and organizations of all kinds to actively engage with the SDGs — the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The website will go live just before the UN summit, which begins 25 September 2015. The 17Goals website and social media channels will connect people to tools and resources they can use to learn about the SDGs, share information with others, and take practical action to help make them real.

The initiative builds on earlier campaigns (including, that helped people engage with the process of the creating the SDGs.

“Now that the SDGs are becoming a global political reality, we all have to work together to make them a practical reality,” says Alan AtKisson, AtKisson Group’s founder and CEO.

Over time, 17Goals intends to grow as a partnership of organizations providing clear, practical information about the SDGs, and free resources that can be used to help make them “standard operating procedure.”
