What are the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals?



"The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another." https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/

Social workers play an important role in achieving the Goals in working towards community and environmental sustainability.
