The Sustainable Development Goals — our shared vision to end poverty, rescue the planet and build a peaceful world — are gaining global momentum.
With just 10 years to go, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise—by mobilizing more governments, civil society, businesses, and calling on all people to make the Global Goals their own.
We have a plan. A plan to teach every child, in every school, about the #GlobalGoals and why they are so important. Find out how YOU can take part in the World's Largest Lesson and help in the fight to end poverty, inequality and climate change today.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if children across the world knew about The Global Goals and began to contribute to their achievement in whatever way they could? This is the ambition of The World’s Largest Lesson. It’s one great big opportunity to foster global citizenship in your school, support students learning across a range of subject areas such as science, geography, citizenship and technology and develop big ideas including human rights, poverty, and environmental issues.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at a historic UN Summit — officially came into force. With these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries are mobilizing efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
