In 2015, the UN countries adopted Agenda 2030, The Global Goals. Agenda 2030 is the most ambitious agreement for sustainable development that the UN has adopted and is a further development of the previous Millennium Development Goals.

The purpose of the agenda

Agenda 2030 aims to:

  • Eliminate extreme poverty
  • Reduce inequalities and injustices in the world
  • Promote peace and justice

Agenda 2030 consists of 17 goals and 169 sub-goals and is integrated and indivisible. By integrated is meant that the different goals affect each other and to achieve the purpose of the agenda, it is required that all goals are achieved, ie they are indivisible.

To achieve the goals within Agenda 2030, it is required that everyone is involved and contributes and feel included. A key principle in Agenda 2030 is "Leave no one behind", and aims for everyone, everywhere, to be able to help create sustainable, inclusive and fair development.
