SDG Action Campaign

The SDGs are now urgent, concrete priorities claimed by people and leaders everywhere.

The Sustainable Development Goals adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. 

They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
