Sustainable Development Goals
What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
In 2015, all UN member states adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, as a global call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
The seventeen sustainable development goals are integrated, meaning that they realize that work in one field will affect results in other areas, and that development must balance social, economic, urban and environmental sustainability, as everyone needs to reach these ambitious goals. Creativity, knowledge and technology are essential to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Goal no. 11
