Keeping the Promise

Take part in our simple and engaging UN Global Compact social media activation and share it with your colleagues, friends and family...the whole world!

In 2015, all UN Member States committed to the Sustainable Development Goals — our shared promise to achieve an end to poverty, rescue the planet and build a peaceful world by 2030.

Now it’s time to keep that promise.

This year we’ve joined the UN’s ‘Keeping the Promise’ campaign, mobilizing employers and employees, your families, friends and communities to make the Sustainable Development Goals their own.

Launching on 24 October — United Nations Day — and running through January 2022, the UN Global Compact invites you to take part in a social media activation to demonstrate your commitment: add your photo to one of our photo filter Promises and share with your friends on your social media platforms.

It couldn’t be simpler!


You can participate in all six UN languages 一 just select your language on the top right before adding your photo

Get started right now by visiting the campaign website.

We believe there are potentially about 87 million workers and employees out there who are part of our UN Global Compact initiative and many of them are on social media.


Here are some other ways you can learn about sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals.

  • Stay up to date with all things UN Global Compact by signing up for our monthly Bulletin, which features success stories from our Local Networks, actions you can take on the SDGs, upcoming events and freshly developed communications tools.
  • Join the SDG Action Campaign’s Act4SDGs movement.
  • Take action — as an individual, a community or business — and track your impact via the UN Act Now campaign and the mobile app.
  • Take the 30-minute UN Global Compact Academy course “How to Understand and Take Action on the Global Goals”, available in Chinese, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.

Please share any questions you may have. We’re looking forward to your participation
