SDG #17 Partnership for the Goals Unveiling

Friday, May 19, 2023 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Saint Mary Interparochial School 440 Locust St
Philadelphia, PA 19106
United States

You are invited by Saint Mary Interparochial School to attend the art unveiling of a new piece of public artwork by Isabelle Cress celebrating SDG #17: Partnerships for the Goals. This project is the seventeenth out of the 17 SDGs, and has become the third goal ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being.

The SDGs can only be realized with strong global partnerships and cooperation.

A successful development agenda requires inclusive partnerships — at the global, regional, national and local levels — built upon principles and values, and upon a shared vision and shared goals placing people and the planet at the centre.

Many countries require Official Development Assistance to encourage growth and trade. Yet, aid levels are falling and donor countries have not lived up to their pledge to ramp up development finance.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the global economy is projected to contract sharply, by 3 per cent, in 2020, experiencing its worst recession since the Great Depression.

Strong international cooperation is needed now more than ever to ensure that countries have the means to recover from the pandemic, build back better and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. 

This is a World Heritage Week event! Philadelphia World Heritage Day was instituted by Mayor Jim Kenney in 2016, and is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each May. This annual event is an important part of bringing awareness of Philadelphia's World Heritage City to all city residents. Each year, the celebration is carried out in a different location and in a different way. In 2023, we will celebrate our 8th year as a World Heritage City by holding a week of activities and event to be held May 15-20th.
