1: No Poverty

Over 80% of humanity lives on less than 10$ a day and while poverty has been reducing since the turn of the century, going by existing trends it is estimated that about 6% of the human race will still live in extreme poverty by 2030. We need to change the course of history. It is time to end poverty in all its manifestations.

2: Zero Hunger

12.9% of the population of developing countries, 780 million people are undernourished or starving. It is possible for us to work together to create a planet that is revitalized by sustainable agriculture, and a human population that has access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food at all times of the year.

3: Good Health and Well-Being

Even though steps are being taken, six million children still die before they turn 5 every year; new pandemics arise and threaten destruction. Universal access to affordable healthcare, innovation in delivery, health financing, health risk reduction and management – much remains to be done. And the time to do it is NOW.

4: Quality Education

In 2011, 25.9% of the developing world couldn’t read or write. The 2030 deadline is closer than we can imagine. It is up to us to ensure that all children all across the world get a chance at a great future. And it all begins with quality education.

5: Gender Euality

It is a matter of shame that the issue of gender parity exists at all. What makes it worse is the scope– health, education, opportunities are all at stake here. The women of the world bear the brunt of trafficking, abuse, child marriage, early childbirth, the unpaid work of caregiving and household tasks. This has to end. NOW.

6: Clean water and sanitation

Only 1% of our planet’s water supply can be used, with 97% being salt water and 2% being frozen. 42% of the people in Africa alone lack access to clean and safe water. The good news is that we can change that. We can make it possible for all people to have access to safe drinking water. But we have to act now.

7: Affordable and clean energy

Fossil fuels will run out in 53 years and natural gas in 54. We are in dire need of sustainable sources of energy, like solar, wind and thermal energy. And with coal deposits dwindling and about to end by 2088 maybe even before, our world needs to turn its attention to renewable energies. NOW.

8: Decent work and Economic Growth

30% unemployment rates in underdeveloped or developing countries and 4-12% in developed countries. We need an estimated 470 million new jobs annually to end this grim scenario by 2030. It can be done, but what we need is action. NOW.

9: Industry Innovation and Infrastructure

When we ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to basic infrastructure like good transport, irrigation, energy and information and communication technology; when industrialization is inclusive and sustainable and when innovation drives the development of new skills; then and only then can we say that progress has been equitable. We already have the know-how. What we need now is the care-enough.

10: Reduced Inequalities

The highest good is a world that is based on merit; and looks beyond age, race, sex, colour, language or religion. We are very far from this. The richest 10% earn 40% of the global income; whereas the poorest 10% earn only between 2 and 7%. We have to change this picture for the better. And we have only until 2030 to make it happen. Let’s act NOW.

11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Half of the human population lives in cities today. Our cities today are plagued by issues of infrastructure, planning, sustainable development, resource distribution, equality, and safety. The answer to this however, is a fairly simple one – innovation and planning. It will take a massive effort to make our cities safe, resilient and sustainable by 2030. Our time starts NOW.

12: Responsible Consumption and Production

If we continue to consume in the manner and at the rate at which we currently are, we could quite literally run out of a planet. To put it in perspective; America alone generated 254 million tons of garbage in 2013. But together, we can change that. Together, we MUST.

13: Climate Action

Carbon Dioxide is going up 406.17 parts per million, polar ice is falling 13.3% per decade and land ice is falling 287 Gigatonnes per year. With global warming and climate change shaping up to be the asteroid that wiped out the humans; we have to take action. And we must do it now.

14: Life Below Water

It is quite stunning that we pay so little attention to the areas that cover over 72% of our planet. With the number of wild fish killed each year estimated to be between 0.97-2.74 trillion, it is imperative that we contribute en masse towards the protection of our life sources. 2030 is not far away. Action starts NOW.

15: Life On Land

13 million hectares of forests are lost every year. Every year, over 150 billion animals are killed for various purposes. To put that number in perspective only 107.4 billion humans have ever existed. The poorest of the poor suffer, and we lose as a race. This has to stop NOW.

16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

The human race has fought roughly 390 wars and documented recognized conflicts since 1900 alone and every day we see this number increasing steadily. The only way forward is to work strongly and consistently towards setting up effective, accountable institutions at all levels. What the world needs is YOUR support.

17: Partnership for the Goals

Alone we can do little, together we can work miracles. Powerful global partnerships is the mantra for achieving the UNSDGs by 2030. We urgently need to unlock trillions of dollars of private resources and redirect them towards the achievement of the Global Goals. The resources exist, what the world needs is committed partnerships at all levels. What partnership are YOU a part of?

The World’s largest lesson: Everyone must know!

The Global Goals got off to a good start and need to keep the momentum going. Where the Millennium Development Goals lacked in people power, the SDGS need to aim higher to ensure success. The framework of the Global Goals has been ratified by 193 countries. Policies have been framed around these goals andmillionsare aligning towards this global movement.

Creating awareness about these goals will immensely contribute to the success of the SDGs.

Take a pledge, share it on social media, and join the generation that will witness the end of poverty by 2030.
