3rd September 2015
The Global Goals campaign was announced today with a bid to reach 7 billion people in 7 days with news of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This unprecedented effort is supported by a variety of campaigns including action/2015, Global Citizen and Project Everyone.
On 25th September at the UN, 193 world leaders will adopt the Global Goals, a series of 17 ambitious goals to end poverty, fight inequality & injustice and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030. The Global Goals campaign aims to both make the goals famous and to
push for their full implementation. If the goals are famous - if people care about what hasbeen promised by the politicians, it greatly increases their chance of being implemented.
So today the campaign along with the UN is calling on everyone to help make the goals famous and ensure they become a reality:
