What are the Global Goals? The global goals serve as the world’s
to-do list from 2016-2030. These goals form a shared agenda to end
poverty, promote peace and opportunity for all, and protect the planet.

Our friends at the United Nations Foundation

"If the goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them. You

convince world leaders to do what needs to be done if you don’t know what

"We can be the first generation
to end extreme poverty, the
most determined generation in
history to end injustice and
inequality, and the last
generation to be threatened by
climate change."
