SDG Flag Campaign 2022

On 23 September 2022, 200 flags were raised across the UK by 97 different organisations, to mark the seven-year anniversary of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and spread awareness of the Goals.

The SDG Flag Campaign started in the Netherlands and has grown over the past two years to see hundreds of businesses, government departments, civil society organisations, and schools raise an SDG flag each September to mark the adoption of the SDGs. This year the UN Global Compact Network UK brought the campaign to the UK, and we are grateful to all organisations who participated.

We hope that by raising an SDG Flag, organisations will show their commitment to the Global Goals and the action that they’re already taking to combat major global challenges including climate change, gender inequality, poverty, and poor work. With only 1 in 10 people in Britain familiar with the SDGs, raising the SDG flag is essential to mobilise stakeholders for action.
