Sustainability for Ukraine
24-hour web-a-thon on the future of sustainability and fundraiser to help rebuild civil society in Ukraine.
The war in Ukraine comes on top of a deluge of unprecedented global events that threaten to turn back progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and undermine the well-being of people and countries around the world.
In war-affected areas, many NGO offices have been physically destroyed, the existing funding for the majority of organizations is running out, and there is no guarantee that resources will be there in the near future.
The global community has an opportunity to help them continue the important environmental and social work that is a critical part of the transition to a sustainable and equitable world.
Starting on June 21 at 1:00pm BST / 8:00am EST, the global sustainability community is coming together for 24 hours to take stock of the sustainable development agenda and catalyze action to get us back on track for the world we know is possible. This event will raise vital financial support for local NGOs in Ukraine that have been devastated by the war.
The following organizations have committed to leading a session of the web-a-thon and leveraging their networks to mobilize attendance and fundraising: 3BL, Akatu Institute (Brazil), AuctusESG (India), B Lab, BBMG, BSR, Business Fights Poverty, Business Leaders Forum, CBSR (Canada), CSR Europe, CSR Ukraine, ELEVATE, Forum for the Future, GlobeScan, GreenBiz, GRI, Maala (Israel), Net Positive, Rethink Asia, SB Japan, SB Thailand, Sustainability Connect (Singapore), and WWF.
