Roots & Shoots in Action

Global Goals

Governments have a plan to save our planet…it’s our job to make sure they stick to it. The UN’s Global Goals aim to achieve three main things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change. To realise these Goals everyone, regardless of their age, needs to take part.
