Advancing the Sustainable Development Goals

The world has a to-do list with a 2030 deadline: 17 goals we must reach to ensure a healthy, prosperous, productive future for generations to come. But time is ticking, and there’s still a lot of work to be done.

Accomplishing the World’s Biggest To-Do List

In 2015, the member countries of the United Nations unanimously adopted a to-do list for the world to achieve by 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), include 17 specific priorities and 231 targets designed to advance human dignity while protecting the planet. Achieving the goals by their 2030 due date will require action from companies, nonprofit organizations, individual citizens, and governments.

UNA-USA’s grassroots network is working to advance the goals in a variety of ways:

  1. We identify local SDG champions—from mayors, to business leaders, to innovators and volunteers—and celebrate their efforts through awards and public events.
  2. We volunteer with and help elevate local partners and programs who support the goals, such as food banks and refugee resettlement organizations.
  3. We stand up for policies that advance the 2030 Agenda in city hall, the state house, and on Capitol Hill.
