Earlier this week, we posted our comprehensive (and overwhelming) list of over 40 relevant events, conferences, forums, summits, and lectures happening throughout New York City as part of Global Goals Week, a highlight of the UN General Assembly kickoff. This week highlights the work of social entrepreneurs, nonprofits, impact investors, and many more to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and champion sustainable development.
