    The UN Day Open House is organized in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations. The year 2020 reminds us that we only have 10 years left to collectively accelerate sustainable solutions to all the world’s biggest challenges. UNU Macau joins the Decade of Action to deliver on that ambition and have been targeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our various ICT for Development projects. For the first time, we will be opening our heritage building, Casa Silva Mendes, to the Macau public for an afternoon of interactive activities and workshops on the Sustainable Development Goals.
