The countries of the world have agreed to achieve three extraordinary things by the year 2030: end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities and injustice and stop climate change.
In order to achieve change, the countries have set up 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, also referred to as Agenda 2030. All the goals are important and interlinked.
Mainly, it is the governments of each country who are responsible for achieving the goals and for making changes that help achieve the goals. But if the world is to have any chance of achieving them, then everyone, including you, has to be aware of the goals and get involved and fight for change! That means both adults and children. Even small actions can make a big difference.
