3Zero Global Alliance

Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty


In 2019, Convergences and Gawad Kalinga joined forces to co-create the “Barangay Walang Iwanan 2019” event that took place in the Philippines in January 2019. The conversation needs to continue in 2020 as all indicators on poverty and exclusion have increased due to the pandemic. While there is positive momentum on carbon reduction from decreased production and consumption, now is the right time to come together again, contextualise the issues within the impact of the global health crisis, and act with more urgency towards the achievement of our 3Zero goals. Join us on October 16 and 17 as the Philippines will host the first 3Zero Forum to bring together participants from all sectors, both physically and online, Filipinos and international actors in favour of the SDGs and a 3Zero world.


In 2015, the international community made key commitments for the future of our planet, first in New York with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations, then in Paris with the climate agreement at COP21. The convergence of all actors and global agendas is at the heart of our approach. Our common objective: the fight against inequalities and climate change to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Beyond international decision-makers, we must all work together, as citizens, local decision-makers, producers and consumers, to build a  Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty world. Together, as 3Zero Global Alliance, we hold governments, companies, NGOs, citizens and all other actors to account to their duties and responsibilities for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved and safeguard the future of humanity and of our planet.



The global community has been pushing for constant growth as the key measure of success with countries ranked according to their level of development. Providing that development is done sustainably, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it can be a force for good. However, all too often the pursuit of development to be achieved at all costs has come at the expense of the natural environment and societal equality. We are the last generation with the ability to positively impact the issues of exclusion, climate change and poverty under all their forms. It is both a great responsibility and a great challenge. It is in this context, up against the wall, that we can strive to bring our best individually and collectively. It is an opportunity to come together and shape the kind of world we want to live in. With the right intentions, strong determination, a commitment to collaboration and co-creation and guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we can meaningfully address these issues and deliver positive change.
