Mission: Save the World

At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. 

From this blog I would like to ensure all readers acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity. The reason? We need superheroes like you to change the world!!!

As my grandmother used to say, “The person who has no health has nothing”. Being in good health must be understood not only as the lack of disease, but also as enjoying a state of full physical, mental and social health. Ensuring a healthy life and encouraging wellbeing for everyone, at all ages, is essential for sustainable development.

The group of superheroes is growing. And that means the goal is closer… Which goal? Weren’t they 17? Yes… well… let me explain. Today we will talk about “the goal”. It is the first one, but it also encompasses all others, and if accomplished, it will make the world a better place on its own. Since I’m backed by a group of superheroes, let’s think big, shall we?

Mission: Save the world

It seems the title of a catastrophic science fiction movie. However, nothing further from reality. The world is in danger and needs to be saved. For this I plan to find as many superheroes as possible who are willing to use their powers in this difficult mission. Will you help me find them? Do you want to be one of them?
