Project hosted by

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. The goals provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. Realization of these goals by 2030 will depend on various factors on which Grassroots ownership is one of them. The Global sustainable development goal project is aiming to contribute to awareness creation leading to change-oriented communication in which all the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and target are communicated to community groups in response to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This project is a platform for volunteers and other interested members to become stimulated to contribute their own ideas and energies, thus contributing to live debates on sustainable issues. This will be realized through community events, interactive sessions on the SGDs and their targets, capacity building for community stakeholders and dialogue with local Government authorities in relations to SDGs and the targets.
