KAILASA Participates in 2024 ECOSOC Partnership Forum at United Nations Headquarters, New York City

United Nations Headquarters, New York City, USA, January 30, 2024 – KAILASA Engages in Sustainable Development Global Dialogue at 2024 ECOSOC Partnership Forum

The UN Economic and Social Council’s (ECOSOC) 2024 Partnership Forum, occurring from January 30th, 2024, is a global event that discusses ways to define and promote effective partnerships and how partnerships can best advance the sustainable development agenda and the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

KAILASA’s diplomatic delegation represented KAILASA’s perspectives, providing solutions for global challenges and presenting THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM (SPH), BHAGAVAN SRI NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM and KAILASA’s long history of contributions towards fulfilling UN SDGs.

Since the turn of the millennium, THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM has been a beacon of inspiration, mobilizing millions of Hindus worldwide towards the pursuit of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

From the outset, THE SPH has mobilized a global movement focusing on SDGs that are integral to the well-being of our planet and its inhabitants. Specifically, we have actively engaged in furthering the objectives of Goal 1 (No Poverty), Goal 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal 13 (Climate Action), Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions), and Goal 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).

In line with this transformative vision and a profound passion for humanity, over 16,000 KAILASA ECOSYSTEMS have been established across the globe. These ecosystems serve as multifaceted hubs, functioning as temples, animal shelters, universities, food banks, and schools.
