United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development

 In Body Mind and Spirit, Sea and Water

‘The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are a UN Initiative, officially known as ‘Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’. This agenda is a set of seventeen aspirational “Global Goals’.

'We the people for the people'

I am committed to number 3 and number 14 too. (3) To ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages’ and (14) ‘To Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development…’

With my love of the healing and the healing power of water how could I choose anything else! What’s your favourite?’

17 Global Goals

Countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you, so share this message in your social networks. #GlobalGoals
