Create an easy to remember and easy to use #hashtag structure through which SDG initiatives can get much more and targeted exposure through social media.

Not only for specific information but more important: to make the connections!

For the Netherlands this means that we will use the following codes:


SDG specific

If you are specifically involved with one or more SDGs, then use the hashtag in your bio too. Use in any case: #NLSDGs.
