In September 2015, our Global leaders (The United Nations General Assembly) met for their 70th session at the Headquarters of the United Nations in NYC,NY. What came from this was the development of The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as part of a United Nations Initiative. This UN Initiative helped to identify 17 Goals and create an action plan for tackling these global challenges that will help to ensure for universal sustainable development. Transforming our world, our people, our planet to prosper can be done through fostering peacefulness and by developing worldwide collaborative partnerships. The SDGs, also known as the 2030 Agenda, is a new universal agenda that acts as a global framework with targets and indicators to help stimulate action for tackling our greatest world challenges for the next 15 years.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A GLOBAL GOALS JAM?
"The #GlobalGoalsJam 2018 is a two day event consisting of short design sprints. Creative teams of designers, developers and Jammers from the local community work together using a tailored toolkit. Together, we will create interventions aimed at short term targets in support of the long term goals. " (GLOBALGOALSJAM.ORG)
Here's a brain tingling statistical graphic driven TED Talk on how to reach the 17 SDGoals by 2030.
