Sustainable Development Goals

 

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.

Living Green Values

These resources are dedicated to the Earth in honour of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 2012.  Rio+20 is a reference to the 20 years that have passed since the first UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio in 1992.

Living Values Education leaders around the world are concerned about our Earth and her oceans.  We would like to offer educators, parents and youth facilitators around the world these Living Green Values materials with the hope that the stories and activities will be useful to you in educating children and young adults, families and communities to internalize the importance of living sustainable lives and caring for our planet.  May we all learn to live in harmony with nature and with respect and care for all.

Let’s spread the word about the need of our Earth and her oceans!
