What are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals?
The 17 SDGs are at the core of the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, which was adopted at the United Nations summit in September 2015. Developed with the participation of the civil society, Agenda 2030 is considered a milestone in the recent history of the UN. The Agenda expresses how development on earth should be shaped in the coming years and decades.
The decisive point is that the 17 SDGs are equally relevant for all countries on earth and that all people should work together to implement the goals. The five "P’s" sum up the core messages of the SDGs: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, Partnership.
