This event at Geneva Peace Week seeks to showcase early success stories in different countries to strengthen and transform preventative action, presenting the latest research by the International Peace Institute and the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies.

Stand Up for SDG16+: Accelerating Progress on SDG 16+ is a high-level side event to the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly. In the same spirit of the joint 2018 HLPF launch, this side event will continue to shine a spotlight on SDG 16+ and build momentum to support the achievement of SDG 16+ as an end goal itself and as an enabler for other SDGs. The side event will provide a platform for member states, private sector, civil society, and youth to highlight how they are supporting the achievement of SDG 16+.
