WOD President offered Angels Award to the United Nations in order to promote the achievement of SDGs

The WOD President offered Angels to the United Nations to promote the achievement of the Global SDGs. During an informal consolation of the UN General Assembly Second Committee, President of the World Organization for Development Robert Gubernatorov made a hands-on suggestion of one incentive to promote the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals until 2030. The new 17 SDGs are very ambitious and require the mobilization for its implementation of a large number of resources: financial, human, technological, and others. To inspire the most significant possible number of people to achieve the SDG from civil society and the business community sectors, systematic and severe promotion and popularization of the support already provided and the done work should be incorporated. The ideal solution is to reward those who have contributed to the implementation of the SDG projects with a public international award. World Organization for Development has a World Investment Award "Investment Angel" and has held its ceremony in different countries. This year the WOD is expanding the project to an International Award to present the Award in various categories, such as: - Innovation Award - Investment Award - Industrial Award and others. Each of these Angel Awards is intended to support, promote and advance the positive results of achieving most of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
