“The 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals are our collective response to building a fair globalization” António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are the world's best plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. The SDGs are a call for action by all countries - developed and developing - to promote prosperity while protecting the environment. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, equality and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and working to preserve our ocean and forests.
The Goals interconnect and apply to all countries through partnerships and peace. In order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.
