NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, global leaders attended a first-of-its-kind "Gallery Walk" - an interactive demonstration designed to educate through experience and provide actionable insights into the pathway to achieving the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

What is a Gallery Walk?
Gallery Walk is a discussion technique that gets participants out of their chairs and into a mode of active engagement.
For participants, it's a chance to share thoughts in a more intimate, supportive setting rather than a larger, anonymous class. For presenters, it's a chance to gauge the depth of understanding of particular concepts and to challenge misconceptions.
