The time to act is now: Implementing the highly ambitious 2030 Agenda has to start without further delay at all levels. It offers a unique opportunity to transform development into sustainable development for all countries and all people. This video captures perspectives of international leaders from government, civil society, science and business, as well as the atmosphere at the first international conference in Berlin, Germany to focus on SDG implementation six months after the adoption by UN member states.
