Stage 1: City Maker Survey

Stage 1: City Maker Survey

2018, ASK + learn

“How are the SDGs traveling in your world?”

By June 2019, 1147 responses from individuals in 92 countries had been received. The top six participating countries were the USA, Australia, India, Brazil , South Africa and the UK.

The survey sought to engage  CITY MAKERS in education (as students, teachers or researchers), the urban professions (including architects, planners,  local government, the arts, the trades) and civil society organizations  to better understand their familiarity with the SDGs  and the New Urban Agenda, and the degree to which they were important in their work. A snapshot reveals 60% were familiar with SDG 11 (sustainable cities), 39% with Goal 13 (climate action), and 24% with Goal 3 (good health and well-being). Goal 15 (life on land)  and  Goal 16 (peace, justice  and strong institutions) were known to 14% of respondents.   The New Urban Agenda was much less familiar than the SDGs. The survey was available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hindi, and Mandarin.
