LESSONS ON LIFE

Wonderful conversations and views from the UK. What we can learn from 100+ year oldies….


ACTION

Global Goals

In September 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If these Goals are completed, it would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.

The Global Goals are only going to work if we fight for them and you can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are. We believe the Goals are only going to be completed if we can make them famous.

 

Our governments have a plan to save our planet, it’s our job to make sure they stick to it!
