The SDG World Tour will sail out from Amsterdam on 16 August 2020 to arrive in New York in September 2022, having been to 17 destinations and activating the global society to realise the 17 goals by 2030.

Showcasing the best examples

The Clipper Stad Amsterdam will sail around the world under the flag of the SDGs to create more awareness by showing the best examples of successful SDG initiatives and bringing people together and by identifying the missing links between and within sectors to ensure inclusiveness, as no one should be left behind.

The SDG World Tour will lead to new innovative ideas and insights for global partnerships to collectively realise the SDGs arriving at the next phase. Acting as a travelling Academy, the project will become the place where knowledge exchange and dialogues between inspirational people and knowledge sharers from various backgrounds occur. Knowledge institutes therefore play a crucial role in making this possible. The 17 SDG Capitals must consist of relevant places where a great number of best practices can be showcased.

Flying the flag of the SDGs, we will set sail on a global mission to connect the world, by sailing from Amsterdam to New York in 17 stages between 2020 and 2022.
