Marketing the SDG Accord to University Presidents
A powerful new global collaboration has formed to put the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of the worlds universities and colleges. The purpose of the SDG Accord is twofold: First, it is to inspire, celebrate and advance the critical role that education has in delivering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the value it brings to governments, business, and wider society. Secondly, the Accord is a commitment that learning institutions are making to one another to do more to deliver the goals, to annually report on each signatory's progress, and to do so in ways that share the learning with one another both nationally and internationally. An objective is that sector SDG reporting metrics will be presented at the annual UN High Level Political Forum.

The Problem this Project Addresses
The problem is that we need to get the word out to ensure university Presidents hear about the Accord and the SDG's and commit to them. We need a volunteer to bring their skills and expertise to better communicate the Accord and creating marketing and other resources to help overcome barriers to signing it.
