An ongoing and collective change
Climate change, poverty, inequality, loss of biodiversity, food security: All are just part of the many challenges our society has to face today. These challenges are all interconnected, all taking form in every country, and all impacting each and everyone of us.
It is not a time of despair. This is a beautiful time for us as solutions are carried by people all over the world.
Everywhere, change has already started and we are all part of it. From the citizens who carry positive initiatives for a more sustainable world to the top organisations such as the United Nations who designed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to bring people together to make a positive change for future generations.
17 Goals for a positive Change
In a global world with global issues, we need more than ever a collective action to build a sustainable society. One that will respect the planet and its living beings. One that will ensure positive interaction at all levels.
We all want to contribute. But it may be sometimes difficult to know how to take action or how to coordinate with others. That is the idea behind the SDGs: Build a global partnership for achieving 17 goals that cover the main sustainable development challenges of our time. Launched in 2016, the 193 member countries of that agreement accepted the ambitious challenge of achieving the goals by 2030.
With these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
