#SDGsInMiami Ambassador Series

The SDGs Ambassador Series is a movement of changemakers, social entrepreneurs and global thinkers and doers that are committed to inform, educate and demand a call to action to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in Miami. Our goal is to leverage private and public connections to spread the movement and create community-driven opportunities to create positive change.

The Ambassadors are passionate community leaders specializing in one of the goals. They are equipped with curated knowledge and advocacy skills to inform and influence stakeholders, policy makers and decision-making leaders. The Ambassadors facilitate salon-style conversations, provide educational workshops, organize community events and support the design of projects related to the SDGs. Their work is volunteer-based and rely on Social Impact Movement’s expertise and resources to carry out activities and projects.

#SDGsInMiami Discussion and Action Circles

Inspired by TED Talks and Brazilian sociologist Paulo Freire, Social Impact Movement developed a learning-sharing format that is our signature program: Discussion and Action Circles. The layout consists of 2 thought leaders, 1 facilitator, 12 attendees per circle and a topic to be covered during a 15-20-minute session. With 2 to 4 circles per event, attendees are encouraged to switch circles and participate in all discussions, hence absorbing an overall idea of the topic and prompting a call to action to join the #SDGsInMiami initiative.

#SDGsVoicesInMiami

Social Impact Movement gives a voice to Miami community members doing amazing work to make our city a better a place to live, study, work and play. We highlight individuals and entities that are impacting our beloved Miami by providing a unique platform to share stories of change thus providing opportunities to learn and engage with diverse stakeholders. The goal is to bring #SDGsVoicesInMiami to the community in an inclusive environment with a language accessible format where local guest speakers will interact with community members. The sessions are designed by thought leaders and aims to discuss topics of interest with the intention of providing content and a space for dialogue for English, Spanish and Portuguese speakers.

What We Offer

The SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all!

GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

We all know how important it is to be in good health. Our health affects everything from how much we enjoy life to what work we can perform. That’s why there’s a Goal to make sure everyone has health coverage and access to safe and effective medicines and vaccines. In the 25 years before the SDGs, we made big strides—preventable child deaths dropped by more than half, and maternal mortality went down by almost as much. And yet some other numbers remain tragically high, like the fact that 6 million children die every year before their fifth birthday, or that AIDS is the leading cause of death for adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa. We have the means to turn that around and make good health more than just a wish.

QUALITY EDUCATION

First, the bad news on education. Poverty, armed conflict and other emergencies keep many, many kids around the world out of school. In fact, kids from the poorest households are four times more likely to be out of school than those of the richest households. Now for some good news. Since 2000, there has been enormous progress on the goal to provide primary education to all children worldwide: the total enrolment rate in developing regions has reached 91%. By measures in any school, that’s a good grade. Now, let’s get an even better grade for all kids, and achieve the goal of universal primary and secondary education, affordable vocational training, access to higher education and more.
