GLOBAL GOALS

In 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to a series of 17 ambitious goals to end poverty, fight inequality, and stop climate change by 2030. The Global Goals are within our reach, but we must remain committed—embracing what works and addressing what doesn't, while holding ourselves and others accountable. Please join us as we strive to create a better world.
