What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals?
The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action for all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. These goals have the ability to create a better world, a world we strive for by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgent climate crisis. As well as business, government and organizations like the United Nations, we are all involved in making sure these vital goals are reached. In essence, we are all in it together!
