Vision and Organization

The SDSN has operated under the auspices of the UN Secretary General and leadership of Professor Jeffrey Sachs since 2012. The SDSN is committed to supporting the implementation of the SDGs at local, national, and global scales. Acting as the board of SDSN, the SDSN Leadership Council brings together over 100 global sustainable development leaders from all regions drawn from civil society, public, and private sectors.

SDSN’s National and Regional networks support the localization of SDGs and their implementation, develop long-term transformation pathways for sustainable development, promote education around Agenda 2030, and launch solution initiatives.
