SDG Action Campaign

The United Nations in Sri Lanka together with the Ministry of Education in partnership with the Hatton National Bank, launched the SDG Action Campaign, on the 72nd UN Day (24 October 2017) to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) around the country.

The SDG Action Campaign is aimed at supporting Student-led initiatives towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Sri Lanka by educating students on the SDGs, calling for project proposals and empowering 25 selected school projects across the island with seed funding and mentoring to kick start their sustainability projects.

As part of this campaign, a national call for applications was circulated to all schools offering Advanced-Level streams across the country inviting students to send in unique ideas on projects that could contribute to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

25 of the best projects will be provided with Rs. 50,000/- as seed funding to kick start their projects and guided in implementing their projects.
