Get Active! Austria’s online platform for a more sustainable development world

Mitmachen! (“Get Active!”) shows people how they can contribute to the SDGs through sustainable consumption, volunteering or corporate social responsibility. The portal is run by Austria’s Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs and the Austrian Development Agency.

Mitmachen!” (“Get Active!”) is an online platform that shows people how they can personally help make the world more sustainable. After all, government-led development co-operation will not be enough to successfully combat poverty and achieve other SDGs. Many people – all of us – need to contribute.

The platform explains the value of activities like responsible consumption, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or volunteering, and groups actions into those that raise awareness, represent regional commitments or contribute to international cooperation.

Mitmachen was established by Austria’s Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs, together with the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).

There are several other ways for Austrians to get involved in development-related initiatives. HubClub for Development is a social innovation hub for global challenges. Initiatives in Austria is a grant programme run by ADA aiming to raise SDG awareness among businesses.
