In launching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development the United Nations Member States and the Society as a whole recognized that the dignity of the individual is fundamental and the Agenda’s goals and targets should be met for all nations and people and for all segments of society.

Leaving no one behind is the overarching principle and transforming the Agenda’s commitments into effective actions requires a precise understanding of the target population. Women, men, children, youth, older persons, persons with disability, people living with HIV, indigenous people, refugees, internally displaced persons and migrants, all of them have in common the fact that they belong to a Family living at Local Level.

Supporting Subnational and Local Authorities and Families to implement the Agenda 2030 with all its 17 SDGs is an exceptional opportunity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis by promoting better community integration with the public sector leading to renewed hope, harmony, growth and job creation while ensuring sustainability.

We are proud to announce that the World Family Summit 2023 will highlight the SDG 11 and 17 – Sustainable Cities and Strong Communities – linked to the Social, Economic and Environmental Dimensions of the SDGs.

We are certain that your participation will add a very special value to the outcome of the Summit. Further information about the Summit is available at .
