Sustainable Development Goals

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – also called Agenda 2030 – are common, universal goals for member states of the United Nations to transform the world into a fairer, more prosperous and peaceful society until 2030. They include a commitment to end poverty, achieve gender equality, improve health and education, make cities more sustainable, combat climate change, protect forests and much more.

But it is not that obvious that myclimate activities contribute to the other Global Goals as well. Please check the following list.
