Music for SDGs Project
Several years ago, we launched “Music for SDGs” Project with the following objective:
Under the slogan of “No one will be left behind!”, aiming to provide opportunities for the general public to deepen understanding of SDGs in an easier and enjoyable way through music events integrating entertainment and education.
On 21 November 2020 (EST), we are delighted to join IAPSS 24-Hour Telethon on Global Homelessness, hosted by International Association of Political Science Students (IAPSS) in collaboration with United Nations Association South New York (UNA-USA), UN2020, UN75, Music for SDGs, The World Is Watching, US-ASEAN Youth Council, and GPODS. Music for SDGs will arrange and run the 5 talent show, inviting world-class talented artists supporting SDGs, and assist in finding speakers and promoting the event.
Most recently, we organized a 17 hour online event on 26 September 2020, back to back to the 17th United Nations General Assembly.
co-hosted by Music for SDGs Coalition and GloCha (6:00am – 11:00pm (EDT), 26 September 2020)
