Global Goals

UNA Chicago

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.

Our governments have a plan to save our planet…it’s our job to make sure they stick to it.

The Global Goals are only going to work if we fight for them and you can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are.

What are the Global Goals

Read more about each of the 17 Global Goals to learn why they are so important and how we can meet them by 2030.

Within the 17 Global Goals there are 169 specific ‘targets’ which explain in more detail what the world could look like by 2030 if the Goals are achieved.

Take a look at these data visualisations to see what progress has already been made, and what still needs to be done ahead of the 2030 deadline.

Take Action

Join the movement to make the Global Goals for sustainable development a reality. We believe the Goals are only going to be completed if we can make them famous. Join in on the conversation across social networks using the #GlobalGoals hashtag and tell our world leaders that this is what we want.
