We are seeking Online Volunteers active in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to assist with outreach for the 2021 Global Week to Act for SDGs. Along with conducting a gap analysis to identify sectors and geographical areas where our initiative could be amplified, online volunteers will draft, send, and follow up with emails sent to organizations which encourage them to sign up and join the Global Week to Act for SDGs. Additionally, online volunteers will share key messages through their social media accounts to encourage engagement from their own networks. Experience as an influencer is therefore a plus (tell us about your networks in your application). We will be providing all online volunteers with an email template and social media assets, available in 10 languages, which volunteers will use in their outreach efforts. All volunteers will be awarded a volunteer appreciation certificate upon successful completion of the assignment.

Communication, mass media and art
The UN SDG Action Campaign catalyses advocacy and engagement, bringing together diverse actors and partners. Through compelling, creative SDG outreach and communications strategies, the UN SDG Action Campaign supports and serves UN Member States and the UN system. It links organizations from civil society, local governments, think tanks, the arts and culture, the media and the business world. It mobilizes individuals to champion the SDGs in homes, communities and beyond. With the COVID-19 pandemic and economic and social disruption sweeping the globe, 2021 is a pivotal year for transformational change. This is a once in a generation opportunity to reset and to create a better future. This September millions of people across the world will join together while world leaders meet (virtually) at the UN General Assembly to make this a turning point for people and the planet. The Global Week to Act for SDGs is a global call to people and organizations everywhere to take action for the Sustainable Development Goals, the roadmap that is needed for a just, equal and sustainable recovery from the crisis.
