Overview of the SDGs

SDGs Logo

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

The 17 SDGs are integrated—they recognise that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.

The creativity, knowhow, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDGs in every context.[Source]
