Do you know the Sustainable Development Goals?
The first anniversary of the proclamation of the Agenda 2030 for the Sustainable Development was on September 21st.
This agreement, adopted by all the countries that form the UN, is focused on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with the aim of addressing the most serious problems on the planet from a universal approach that encompasses all of the key actors (governments, organizations, civil society…). According to information from the United Nations, as of today the Agenda 2030 is already implemented in more than 50 countries.
Throughout this first year, we have also played our part in the disclosure of the SDGs in Smilemundo, in cooperation with the International Network of Cities and Local and Regional Governments (UCLG), an entity that supports the international cooperation between the cities and its associations. We have developed a series of animations about the following four developmental goals:
SDG5 – Gender Equality
SDG8– Decent work and economic growth
SDG11– Sustainable cities and communities
SDG16– Peace, justice and solid institutions
With the videos, each SDG is explained in a visually pleasing way and show its possible implementation by the local governments worldwide .
