About the SDG's
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
The 17 SDGs are interelated—that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Through the ‘Leave No One Behind’ pledge, countries have committed to fast-track progress for those furthest behind first in order to make completing the SDGs a real goal, and not just a dream. That is why the SDGs are designed to bring the world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.
The cooperation help and funding of all is needed to achieve these lofty goals. The knowledge, creativity, wisdom, technology and funding from everyone in all corners of the globe are necessary to achieve every single SDG.
If, however, humanity does not band together…..
Then we may end up in a world where the living envy the dead.
The SDGs are a bold commitment to finish what we started, and end poverty in all forms and dimensions by 2030. This involves targeting the most vulnerable, increasing basic resources and services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and climate-related disasters
Since the beginning of time the eradication of poverty has been perhaps more than any other challange, the most difficult on that mankind has faced so far, except for the problem of stopping death. While the number of people living in extreme poverty has dwindled down by more than half between 1990 and 2015, far, far too many are still struggling for the most basic human needs, such as food, water, and shelter.
As of 2015, about 736 million people still lived on less than two dollars per day; many lack food, clean drinking water and sanitation. Rapid growth in countries such as China and India has lifted millions out of poverty, but progress has been stunted and uneven. Women are more likely to be poor than men because they are paid less for their work, have less education, and own less property.
Progress has also been limited in other regions, such as South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, which account for 80 percent of those living in extreme poverty. New threats brought on by climate change, conflict and food insecurity, means that even more work is needed to bring people out of poverty and into the life of, at the very least, the lower working class.
Possible solutions to this include entreprenureship programs and job training, but even those a are not foolproof.
This is where you come in. The world needs people like you in order to come up with slutions and fund those solutions. There are 7.8 billion people on this planet. At least 100 will make it to this website. 50 of those people will mindlessly scroll past, looking for something entertaining. The other fifty will take the time to read it. Fourty will forget as soon as they are done reading while ten will go out, spread the word. Will you make a difference in this world?
Or will you watch with the rest of the entertainment seekers as the world burns? The choice is yours. Poverty just is one of many problems, but if you can help out just a single soul in this cruel, dark opressive world, then you have accomplished your mission.
