Relating the work of churches to the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development

Churches have been working on areas related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) long before the United Nations even existed. However, very often, churches are not aware of how their work links to the work of the United Nations and its Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

As part of the ‘Waking the Giant’ initiative, LWF has developed a tool that easily allows churches and related actors to make the connection between their ongoing activities and specific SDGs.

This tool, available online and as a paper version, will be officially launched during the LWF Council, in the presence of the Council members, UN and government representatives. Subsequently, it will be publicly available on the LWF website.
