The Peace Boat is sailing to take the Sustainable Development Goals around the globe.
For the first time this year, the UN SDG Action Campaign collaborates with Peace Boat for this 99th Global Voyage, aiming at inspiring and mobilizing people to take action for the SDGs.
Departing from Yokohama, Japan, on September 1 and returning on December 17, 2018, Peace Boat will visit 24 ports in 23 countries in 4 months, taking the Sustainable Development Goals on a tour around the globe.
Peace Boat Director and Founder, Yoshioka Tatsuya said “Peace Boat and the UN SDG Action Campaign share common goals. Working together, we will be able to engage more people to achieve the 2030 Agenda”.
Both entities will join forces in the development of Peace Boat’s educational programming, including Global University and SDG Youth Programmes, through guest educators from the Campaign and partner networks, the global citizen platform MY World and the MY World photo and video stories.
The UN SDG Action Campaign and Peace Boat announced their collaboration after signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) during the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York last July.
