There’s always a need for more talk about the SDG’s. So here’s a brief intro, and nice TED talk for you.
The Sustainable Development Goals came to life and was formally adopted in september 2015 during the UN Sustainable Development Summit. The official title is Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Included in the 17 goals are 169 targets and 304 indicators to guide the path towards 2030.
If you need more info see UN’s Sustainable Development Goal website here.
There is, and will always be, criticism concerning such initiatives. Yes, it could be more ambitious, and less complex – hopefully that can be achieved in the next update. But to us the the goals represent a brilliantly concrete tool for communication and motivation. This website was impossible without the goals, and so are a lot of other initiatives. So, we are all in!
We truly believe that we goals are not only a path for a better future for the world, but also holds guidance for future careers and business opportunities. If you want to flourish in the business world of tomorrow, you better align with the goals today. That goes for employees as well as leaders.
