"Launched at WGS 2018, the SDG’s Global Councils is a unique interdisciplinary network of decision makers from governments, international organizations, academia, and the private sector coming together to share innovative practices and discuss possible creative implementations for the SDGs, at national and global levels. Each Council is chaired by a high-level representative from government or an international organization.
In their strive to implement innovative solutions, and integrate their findings into the United Nations and other global fora on SDGs, the Councils are obliged to create new partnerships between countries and organizations. The Council Chairs operate over a two-year term, where the first year focuses on concept and plan development, and the second year focuses on implementation of ideas. Each Chair acts as a champion for the Council, and communicates the Council's discussions and outcomes across a range of international fora, particularly at the annual World Government Summit."
