In September 2015, 193 heads of state pledged their commitment to implement the 17 Sustainable Development Goals at the United Nations. 

The UNGSII FOUNDATION was created to assist and accelerate the implementation process. Our mission is to ensure that the world reaches its goal, at the latest, by 2030.

UNGSII (in co-operation with UN Habitat, UNSDSN, UNICEF, UN Academic Impact, WHO, and other SDG related excellence partners) have shortlisted 25 leading cities and 5 indigenous communities to implement all SDGs by 2025 and prove it's possible. 

Improvements and learnings will be shared once per year at the SDG Lab in Davos and at the UN Habitat Urban Forum and other HLPF event. The frontrunners will help develop the criteria and metrics to inspire the other 9975 cities with more than 100,000 citizens around the world implement the SDGs.
