This report describes a new approach to stimulating cooperative action toward the
Sustainable Development Goals. As an experimental method for SDG convening and
problem-solving, 17 Rooms aims to surface practical next steps within each goal while
also stimulating productive connections across all goals. In its early incarnations, 17
Rooms has proven useful at multiple scales of action, ranging from local communities
to the global level. The approach can be just as effective for experts immersed in UN
frameworks as for community practitioners who operate free of international policy
jargon. This report takes stock of the 17 Rooms initiative as of early 2021 and captures
emerging insights for a broader community of readers who might be interested in
collaborating moving forward.
