Global Goals

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for everyone by 2030.

At Enlighten World, we make sure all our work helps to achieve these goals.

Working Towards Achieving SDG’s Target

In September 2015, 193 UN member-states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as the primary framework to shift the world in the direction of a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable future.

The SDGs are a set of cross-linked goals and a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for today and for future generations.

These SDGs are highly relevant in today’s times. They address the acute challenges we face – from climate crisis, abuse of women’s rights, mounting pressures on the environment, unliveable cities, mass-scale poverty and deprivation, and more. Throughout the SDG adoption process, it was emphasised that businesses would have to play a pivotal role in delivering on the objectives of the 17 goals by 2030.

Nearly all the countries in the world have promised to improve the planet and the lives of its citizens by 2030.

They’ve committed themselves to 17 life-changing goals, outlined by the UN in 2015. These Global Goals, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), include ending extreme poverty, giving people better healthcare, and achieving equality for women.

The aim is for all countries to work together to ensure no one is left behind. Here you can read about the goals and learn how Enlighten-World Foundation is helping to achieve them.
