Throughout #UUSUSustainabilityFortnight we’ll be sharing the fantastic ways that our members, societies, and enterprises have worked towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (illustrated in the graphic below)
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). It's now five years on, and we have more work than ever to do. These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
