For IDW’s 30th anniversary, let’s #GoForTheGoals!
This year’s International Development Week theme is “Go for the Goals”. Referring to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this theme illustrates the idea of moving forward in a collaborative and positive way toward a better world.
This way forward is the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This Agenda is a global plan of action aiming to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. In other words, it is a path that seeks to shift the world toward a less wasteful, less destructive and more sustainable and equitable mindset. One where no one goes hungry, no one feels unsafe, and no one is left behind.
While this Agenda involves ambitious goals, we can achieve them if we #GoForTheGoals together. With only a decade until 2030, this edition of the International Development Week is an ideal moment to highlight the achievements and the efforts Canadians have made toward reaching the SDGs.
