On September 25, 2015, 197 countries adopted a set of 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and Climate Mamas and Papas the world over.
On this, the second Anniversary of the adoption of the Global Goals, let’s choose to focus on the positive, what we can and must do.
Let’s remember our priorities and that solutions to our world’s great problems, are in our grasp, if we work together.. let’s NOT focus on divisiveness..rather togetherness. United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed has a powerful message on how and why we must to take action if we want the Sustainable Development Goals to be a reality by 2030. Share it with the kids in your life.
We are in? What’s your priority goal? Ours in #13, Climate Action, which is intrinsically connected to all the others. Join us as part of the solution. Let’s start by telling everyone we know about the Global Goals. Here is a list of actions that each of us can easily take in our everyday lives to contribute to a sustainable future. We know many of these things you are already doing, so we can and must do more too. We all must do what we can. Our children are watching.
Yours in action and hope,
