On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 Global Goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice, and fix climate change by 2030. The Global Goals for sustainable development aim to get these things done in all countries, for all people.
The Global Goals for sustainable development support a future with no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, and gender equality. They also include commitments to clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, and improvements to industry, innovation and infrastructure. Reduced inequalities, support for sustainable cities and communities, and efforts toward responsible consumption and production are also included. Also, the goals focus on climate action, life below water, life on land, and peace and justice through strong institution. The final goal is to strengthen the partnerships necessary to make the other goals possible.
The Global Goals are promoted by Global Citizen, an organization that recruits millions of people world wide to learn about global issues and take action.
