In September 2015, at the historic session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the Prime Minister of India, along with heads of 192 countries, committed to end poverty and improve people’s lives by adopting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development or #SDGs.
The Sustainable Development Goals recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions is the greatest global challenge of our times and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development, one that can only be addressed if all countries and people come together in a collaborative partnership – for people, planet, prosperity and peace.
The new Goals are unique as they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. Ending poverty and fighting inequalities is at the heart of the SDG Agenda, and is to be achieved with strategies that promote economic growth and deliver on a range of urgent social needs like education, health, social protection, gender equality and job opportunities, while addressing climate change and environmental protection.
We are the first generation that can end poverty and the last that can end climate change.
The United Nations today calls upon you, Global Citizens, to join world leaders and make your voice heard.
