Sustainable development goals
In 2015, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or the Global Goals, which provide a universal call to action for ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring peace and prosperity for all people by 2030. The SDGs consist of 17 integrated goals that recognize the interconnection between different areas and the need to balance social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Countries have committed to prioritizing progress for marginalized communities. The SDGs aim to eradicate poverty, hunger, AIDS, and discrimination against women and girls. Achieving the SDGs requires the collaboration of society, including creativity, knowledge, technology, and financial resources, across all contexts.
