UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are a global to-do list for the planet. Agreed by world leaders in 2015, they are 17 goals designed to create a better, more sustainable world by 2030. They have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and address the urgency of climate change through encouraging people to work together to build a better future.
