How SDC help meet the SDGs
The SDGs represent an ambitious plan to enhance peace and prosperity, eradicate poverty and protect the planet. They are recognized globally as essential to the future sustainability of our world.
Putting ideas into practice with the SDC-SDG tool
SDC was established in 2020 after the ratification of Agenda 2030. Its functions were mainly to review progress of SDG research and implementation and global level, identify gap, and propose research issues. The SDC creates and curates free massive open online courses and educational materials on sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals. Our generation is the first to have the resources to make the transformation to a world with more wealth and less inequality. A world in which we protect biodiversity and climate, and in which everyone lives together in peace. In such a world, everyone has a place, from individual to multinational. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are our agenda for such a world in 2030. The common language of the seventeen goals connects us and makes it possible to work together. The goals are inter-connected and cross borders between countries and sectors. They represent a series of complex challenges and opportunities. They require actions from everyone at all levels and can bring about profound transformations. To create a better world, it is essential and possible to combine the strengths of different individuals and organizations and leave no one behind. SDC brings individuals and organizations together, catalyzes joint actions and creates synergy around the Sustainable Development Goals.
- In 2015 the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all countries of the United Nations in unprecedented international solidarity , with the input of countless private and public organizations and citizens worldwide.
- The SDGs form a joint agenda for a resilient and sustainable world by 2030, where economic, ecological and social values are in balance, with the common thread: leave no one behind. They form an integral agenda, with local, national and international dimensions. They offer a future perspective that connects private and public organizations and citizens.
- We are the first generation to have the resources to make this world a reality and the last generation to prevent further irreversible negative changes. We all need each other for this: private and public organizations and citizens.
- We will maximize our own positive contributions to the SDGs and minimize our negative contributions, at home and abroad, and we will be transparent about that. We can strengthen each other by working together. As SDC, we can tackle shared problems and opportunities together and determine our joint strategy.
- We come from various backgrounds and it is precisely working together across borders that makes us strong and innovative : companies, social organisations, young people, the financial sector, central government and local authorities, education, knowledge institutions, philanthropists and citizens (as consumers, employees, parents, etc.) ).
- We are individuals or we represent organizations based in any part of the world, but we can contribute to the SDGs in all around the world. We can work together with similar initiatives in all countries.
- The SDGs are of, for and by all of us. No one can be left behind. We call on everyone to participate.
