Supported by CITY SUMMIT's education and marketing platform, Global Unity and its City Gala assist visionary community leaders who are working to meet the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that global leaders agreed to for a better world by 2030. 

These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
