Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as an urgent call to action to end poverty and other deprivations that 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.
