On 25th September 2015, leaders from 193 member states of the United Nations, met to discuss the world’s problems and decide on a plan to tackle them. They named this plan the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (commonly known as the Global Goals).
The three big aims of the Global Goals are that we fight inequality and injustice, end extreme poverty and tackle climate change. The Global Goals are the most ambitious agreement for sustainable development that world leaders has ever made.
They build on the success of their predecessors the Millennium Development Goals and aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. That is why we need everyone to know about these Goals and to take action for them. Everyone, everywhere has a part to play.
Your role is to learn about the Goals, to teach them to others and to take action wherever you live.
