SDGs

“Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, known as the United Nations SDGs, are a blueprint for action agreed by world leaders in 2015. They succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for developing countries that ended in 2015. As many problems persist and are global in scope, the new goals apply to all countries, regardless of their stage of development.  Individuals from all sectors of society in Australia and New Zealand can contribute in simple ways by taking actions whether small or large.

The 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) to transform our world are:

  1.  No poverty
  2. Zero Hunger
  3. Good Health and Well-being
  4. Quality Education
  5. Gender Equality
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation
  7. Affordable and Clean Energy
  8. Decent Work and Economic Growth
  9. Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  10. Reduced Inequality
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
  12. Responsible Consumption and Production
  13. Climate Action
  14. Life Below Water
  15. Life on Land
  16. Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  17. Partnerships to achieve the Goals
