SDG Flag Day

September 25, 2024

Join us for the SDG Flag Day and raise a Flag!

We are excited to invite you to participate in this year's SDG Flag Day. At the end of September, all around the world the SDG Flag will be raised to show our support to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With the flag campaign, organisations, businesses, municipalities, schools and governments worldwide show that they are part of this global movement for a better world. Be part of this international campaign and join us this year on September 25th, 2024.

 

The SDG Flag Day campaign was launched in 2020, and it has been

growing in popularity ever since. In 2023 more than 200 flags were

raised in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Will you be joining us this year?

  • Invite your employees' families to hoist the flag together with kids

  • Organize an open-day event where your community can learn about your sustainability efforts

  • Create new content by taking pictures of your staff, management, and other stakeholders holding up the SDG flag
