The United Nations adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2015-2030 at the Sustainable Development Summit in New York from 25 to 27 September 2015. It is a great step forward and a far-reaching commitment of the community of nations. Is it more than wishful thinking? Yes it is, but what can we specifically contribute to achieving the SDGs?
The 17 new SDGs for the next 15 years are ambitious and wide ranging. They show the connectivity between such seemingly distinct activities and areas as ending poverty, providing more education, good health, technological and social innovation, gender equality, inclusive communities, sustainable cities and climate justice.
