170 daily actions

Discover some of the simple actions you can take to stay on the road to a prosperous planet.

Our actions today affect our children tomorrow. Everyone deserves a fair an equal chance in life. Through the goals, we can reach far and wide because the goals are universal, they leave no one behind. It’s also important to understand that these goals are interconnected. We cannot separate poverty from hunger, or education from women’s empowerment and so on. If we can grasp that, we are closer to understanding the needs that must be met, and in turn we are closer to achieving the 17 goals. It’s time to give back to the planet what the planet has given to us. It’s simple and there is no cost.

This matters to each of us because we are all responsible for being a part of the change.
