As the United Nations notes, 2015 is a time for global action. From September 25 to September 27 2015, world leaders will gather at the UN to adopt 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve extraordinary things in the next 15 years: end poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, and protect the planet. These Sustainable Development Goals set a course to achieve these objectives – for people everywhere.
If the goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them. You can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are. You can’t convince world leaders to do what needs to be done if you don’t know what you’re convincing them to do. If the goals are famous, they won’t be forgotten.
We can be the first generation to end extreme poverty, the most determined generation in history to end injustice and inequality, and the last generation to be threatened by climate change.
