SUN Movement Global Gathering 2017
Nourishing a Sustainable Future
In 2017 – for the first time – the SUN Movement Global Gathering took place in a SUN Country – Côte d’Ivoire. Abidjan welcomed members of the SUN Movement and hosted proceedings to share their inspirational progress and encourage global collaboration in the fight against malnutrition.
The SUN Global Gathering brought together all SUN Government Focal Points and representatives of their partners from civil society, donors, United Nations agencies, private sector partners, academia, media, parliamentarians and others. It is the flagship event of the SUN Movement and an important moment where members take stock of progress and challenges, share their innovations and learn what is helping to reduce malnutrition across all SUN Countries. It is a moment for every actor to be energised and encouraged through sharing, learning and finding ways to take their fight against malnutrition to the next level.
The SUN Movement Global Gathering will take place from 7-9 November 2017 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The event is by invitation only, however, plenary sessions will be webcast live for global audiences to take part and contribute to the dialogue via social media with #SUNGG17.
