United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS)

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 an urgent call for action by all countries — developed and developing — in a global partnership.

They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth — all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

Sustainability in this sense must focus on breaking the systemic flaws in our society that lead to ongoing cyclical problems of poverty, extreme inequality, and lack of food, water, and shelter. Coordinated actions are costly, but numerous studies show that investment in development pays dividends, both in societal benefits and economically as well.

For true sustainable growth, we must completely change our viewpoint on how we fund our shared societal growth both globally and locally, and no individual person can do that.

But together we can.
