What are Global Goals? Where Do We Step In
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change.
Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.

It’s Time to Act, for People and for Planet
Our world and our future are under threat from persistent poverty, growing inequality, and the climate crisis. We’ve made some progress but nowhere near enough to deliver on the promises made by all nations in 2015 to meet the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
We have to accelerate and rejuvenate efforts if we are to achieve these Goals. 2020 will be a crucial year to do this.
Marking a third of the way through the SDGs and ten years to go – it is a make or break year - full of key decision moments on gender, inequality, climate, ecosystems, democracy and civic space. It is a mission critical moment to inspire and engage the world to set the path for a decade of delivery.
