This week's theme focuses on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The UN SDGs, also known as Global Goals, are a global plan of action for people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships.
Each of the 17 SDGs provides a doorway into addressing the economic, social and environmental implications of the particular goal. It soon becomes apparent that in addressing poverty, for example, we must look at reducing gender inequalities, attaining quality education, and securing clean and affordable energy. Action and progress in one area will have a great impact on the outcomes of another.
The SDGs recognize the importance of acting together, and this universal call to action requires every one of us to come together in order to achieve a better and more sustainable future for our planet!
