THE PLEDGE

The task of bettering our world is bigger than any one of us. But it's smaller than all of us.

ABOUT THE SDGs

On September 25th 2015, 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.

For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.

Do you want to get involved? You can start by telling everyone about them. We’ve also put together a list of actions that you can take in your everyday life to contribute to a sustainable future.

Decent work and economic growth

Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all

the ocean.
