Global Goals week is here, running alongside Climate Week in NYC and bringing together individuals, governments, businesses, international organisations, civil society, and other partners for the UN General Assembly to discuss progress made on the Sustainable Development Goals and to cultivate new ideas, solutions and partnerships.

We look to our own network of Award winners and see just how diverse they are. At Ashden, we are committed to tackling SDG 7: To ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. While our winners not only strive to tackle this issue, their work also cuts across many of the other goals as well.
