Amman - On the eve of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit in New York, the United Nations in Jordan projected the SDGs onto the Citadel of Amman.

This historic landmark, the Citadel, became a canvas for messages and calls to action symbolizing the SDGs, reaffirming the UN's support for Jordan as it pursues the SDGs through the strength of partnership and collective efforts.

As global leaders convene for the SDG Summit in New York from 18-20 September, they are set to announce ambitious commitments on both a global and national scale, igniting the transformative potential of the SDGs. Jordan, in partnership with the UN, has developed five national commitments across key areas.

This illuminating event at the Citadel aligns with Jordan's #17Goals campaign, harmonizing with the global SDGs initiative. It amplifies the call for the SDGs, galvanizing a diverse array of stakeholders and inspiring concrete steps toward realizing the 2030 Agenda.
