The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 interconnected goals adopted by all UN member states in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The SDGs aim to address global challenges such as poverty, hunger, inequality, climate change, and environmental degradation, and provide a framework for achieving sustainable development in a comprehensive and integrated way. The goals are universal, meaning they apply to all countries, and they are designed to be inclusive and leave no one behind.
The SDGs cover a broad range of issues, from ending poverty and hunger to promoting health and well-being, ensuring quality education, achieving gender equality, and promoting sustainable economic growth and decent work for all.
Achieving the SDGs requires a collective effort from governments, civil society, the private sector, and individuals. SDG Seventeen, represents a call to action for all Canadians to work together towards a more sustainable and equitable future for all.
