At The DO School, we believe that in just one day individuals and communities can come together and make a tangible difference towards global challenges – no matter how daunting. That’s why we created DO Day: our annual international day of DOing on the 18th of October. DO Day calls on Purposeful DOers around the world to come together and co-create solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
DO DAY 2020
This year, #DODay20 will focus on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – 17 goals that provide “a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.
It’s clear that our actions in the next ten years will determine the future of generations to come. While global awareness around issues like climate change, education, equality and economic growth is on the rise, many of us feel paralyzed by the overwhelming amount of information. We at The DO School want to change this. This is why we’re calling this the Decade of DOing. And we want you to get involved.
Covering a broad range of topics from sustainable cities and communities to zero hunger, the SDGs provide an excellent framework for creating impact. With DO Day 2020, we want to empower communities worldwide to co-create solutions around the 17 SDGs and together, start embracing this Decade of DOing.
