sdg graphicAdopting Global Goals for Sustainable Development

Unite students in action through the Sustainable Development Goals. Show students that SDGs are business & community solutions that improve lives, create jobs, restore the environment, enhance security, generate resilience & advance human health. The SDGs will be integrated into all sustainability projects and events to illustrate their impacts on our everyday lives. 

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global 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.

HEALTHY NOT HUNGRY

To celebrate the Global Goals in 2017/2018, we are asking students to think about how their food choices impact the SDGs and to pledge to make changes. From healthy eating to reducing waste, eliminating plastic packaging, sourcing closer to home and checking on the practices of food producers, take action toward a Healthy Not Hungry community. Stand up for those who are hungry right now and need your help!
