Thematic Focus:

We invite you to become a part of the largest global initiative towards sustainable development in our history. In 2015, after four years of negotiations, over 190 world leaders committed to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through these goals we hope to end poverty, inequality, injustice, irreparable climate change and bring about peace, security and sustainable development to our world. Find out how you can take action and be part of the local momentum!
