Mayors & Ambassadors. Scoring the Sustainable Development goals

Let’s get moving for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)! The Forum of Mayors 2020 brought together last October mayors and diplomats on a football field. City leaders and Geneva-based ambassadors teamed-up to get the ball rolling for the Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs.

The match took place at the Palais des Nations – the grass field normally reserved for peacocks turned into a playing field for sporty policymakers and tactical diplomats.

The match was opened by Captain of Ambassadors United: Walter Stevens, Head of EU Delegation to the UN in Geneva and Captain of Mayors United: Sami Kanaan, Mayor of Geneva. The final score was 17 for the Ambassadors and 14 for the Mayors.
