Now Is The Time For Us To Act

Today, our planet faces its greatest challenges in health, economy, equity and environment. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of Resolution 70/1 of the United Nations General Assembly, define common global priorities and aspirations, agreed upon by governments around the world. These targets are set to be achieved by 2030 and represent an unprecedented opportunity to put the world on a path for all.

Sustainable Development Goals

Global Effort

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) seek to mobilize global efforts around a common set of goals and targets. The SDGs call for worldwide action among governments, business and civil society to end poverty and create a life of dignity and opportunity for all, within the boundaries of the planet.

Creativity

SDGs explicitly call on all sectors to apply their creativity and innovation to solve sustainable development challenges. The success relies heavily on action and collaboration by all actors.

Opportunity

SDGs present an opportunity for all organizations, individuals. The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.
