What are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals?

In 2015, all countries in the world agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges by 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals – or SDG’s – are broken down into 169 sub-goals, that will make it easier to work towards a solution to each of the goals.

Everyone can contribute to solving the challenges. Whether as a private individual, a company, organization or government, it is possible to work with the SDG’s to ensure that we succeed.
Milton Around the World works with the SDG’s by creating teaching materials about the goals for the youngest school children – and by doing this we simultaneously support SDG 4 – Quality Education.

Below you can see the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and what challenges they each have to solve. You can also read much more about the SDG’s and the sub-goals here (link to other page). Get news about the current status of the goals at www.worldsbestnews.org.
