Celebrating Leadership & Innovation on Sustainable Development Goal 7

By invitation only. To request an invitation, email 

Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) will host a celebration of leadership and innovation – Seven for 7 – to recognize those who are making a significant contribution to increasing the speed and scale required to meet Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) which calls for universal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030. 

Access to energy is a prerequisite for quality health care and is fundamental to the achievement of universal health care coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals. Using health as the common thread, the seven stories of leadership will help demonstrate the profound impact that investment in sustainable energy can have on human development and well-being. The event will feature success stories from policy, business and finance as well as innovators from the community of Ashden Award winners.

Seven for 7 will take place on the sidelines of the critically important 2019 Climate Action Summit being convened by the UN Secretary-General.
