A joint Brookings-UN Foundation event

Past Event

On Monday, September 19, the Center for Sustainable Development at the Brookings Institution and the United Nations Foundation cohosted the fourth annual “American Leadership in Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals” event on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

Building on gatherings in 2019, 2020, and 2021, this in-person event showcased local leadership, innovation, and commitments from communities across the United States to advance sustainable development domestically and around the world.

As the world approaches the halfway point on the Sustainable Development Goals, this year is an opportunity for U.S. leaders from across sectors to reflect on progress made and to understand what more is needed heading into 2030.
