The Jane Goodall Institute work is putting into action the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Individuals, families communities, businesses, and governments together with the UN mobilising efforts by all countries to improve the lives of animals, people and environments everywhere.
In September of 2015, the United Nations (UN) decided what world they wanted to see, and crafted a set of 17 goals to help us achieve that vision. 193 member countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to tackle some of humanity’s most difficult problems, from climate change to inequality.
The aim of the goals - end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.
The Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
