Global Goals Week
Today, 16th September, is the first day of Global Goals Week, an annual week of action, awareness, and accountability for the SDGs.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, 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 recognise 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.
We are very proud of the fact that our work
meets so many SDGs, as it is vital that conservation progress works WITH progress towards eradicating poverty, hunger, and inequalities, not against it.
Our strategy and the work we support meets the following SDGs:
1: NO POVERTY
2: ZERO HUNGER
3: GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
4: QUALITY EDUCATION
5: GENDER EQUALITY
6: CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
7: AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
8: DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
9: INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
10: REDUCED INEQUALITIES
11: SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
12: RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
13: CLIMATE ACTION
15: LIFE ON LAND
