Become a Factivist
This has been a year like no other. As Arundhati Roy said, COVID-19 has ‘made the mighty kneel and brought the world to a halt’ but we have a chance to turn it around.
This is our chance to reset our word for the better. But to do so we need to know the state of our world and take action.
That’s why this September during the UN General Assembly and as part of Global Goals Week we’re focussing on Factivism with two exciting projects we’d like to share with you.
The Global Goals Day of Factivism
We need accurate data to help us understand the state of our world, know how much progress we need to make and see the impacts of COVID-19. As part of Global Goals Week (18-26th September), we’ll come together on 25 September to mark the Global Goals Day of Factivism by sharing ten up to date facts about the state of our world RIGHT now and inspiring people to take action from supporting campaigns to changing their habits.

Wiki Loves SDGs Edit-a-thon
Wikipedia is one of the world’s most visited websites. But despite this, there is an information gap about the Global Goals. That is why, on 19-26th September, hundreds of volunteers from around the world will come together to create Wikipedia pages of the Global Goals helping spread the knowledge about people, planet and our Global Goals.
Get involved, help raise awareness about the Goals and connect with a global community of passionate volunteers. Sign-up by 11th September to volunteer here.
