Citizenship

Let the world know that the Global Goals matter to you

It's here: Our once-in-a-generation opportunity to create a sustainable world without poverty and with opportunity for everyone.

On September 25, world leaders will come together at the United Nations to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals, a concrete action plan for people and the planet. It's our shared global to-do list for ending extreme poverty, fighting injustice and inequality, and fixing climate change -- all by 2030.

If the goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them. We have to make sure every person from all sectors and all countries is prepared to add his or her voice so leaders know we want global action for a better world.

If we seize this moment, we can be the first generation to end extreme poverty, the most determined generation in history to end injustice and inequality, and the last generation to be threatened by climate change -- but we need everyone to play a role.

Watch and share this video to help spread the word about the Sustainable Development Goals now.
