Exploring the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals designed to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

These goals cover a broad range of interrelated issues, including poverty, hunger, education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, sustainable cities and communities, climate action, and more.

Achieving the SDGs requires the collective efforts of individuals, communities, organizations, and governments around the world.
