UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Seeking Event Management Company

The office of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is seeking an event management company in Germany to provide support with the establishment of the Global Campaign Center of the UN SDG Action Campaign, including the launch event of the Center and other relevant Campaign events in Bonn and internationally.

The United Nations Millennium Campaign (UNMC) was established in 2002 by former Secretary-General Kofi Annan, to support people’s participation in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (2000-2015) and assist people in holding their governments accountable to their commitments. As part of the United Nations Development Group (UNDG), prior to the adoption of the Agenda 2030, the UNMC was mandated to lead part of the global consultation on the Post 2015 agenda to make the most inclusive and transparent process. As a result, 10 million people participated in this open consultation, and told the United Nations what would make their lives better through the MY World 2015 survey, and the World We Want 2015 platform. This set a new precedent at the United Nations and with policy makers around the world – opening the door to more people-centered policy making.

As a natural continuation after the adoption of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015, the mandate of the UNMC was extended as a special initiative of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to support peoples’ participation in SDG implementation.

Action Campaign works to build new multi-stakeholder partnerships to ensure a transparent dialogue between decision makers and their constituencies, especially the most marginalized and vulnerable populations. It will continue to leverage cutting-edge communication technologies, to show the human story behind development challenges and create deeper empathy and understanding between decision-makers and their people.

Finally it will use data, technology and innovation to empower people with the knowledge and tools to become actively involved in supporting their governments with SDG implementation and to continue to involve as many people as possible in the decision making process.

In order to ensure the Campaign is fit for purpose to deliver on this mandate, a Global Campaign Center is being established in Bonn (Germany) to act as a hub to inspire people’s action on the Sustainable Development Goals, connect and amplify stakeholder efforts, open up measures of accountability, aggregate citizen-generated data, showcase impact, share best practices, and incubate and test out innovative efforts around SDG implementation.

The UN SDG Action Campaign is therefore seeking to recruit an Events Management Company to provide support with the organization of UN SDG Action Campaign events in Bonn and internationally.
