United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015 Marks the Adoption of the SDGs

More than 150 world leaders are expected to attend the UN Sustainable Development Summit from September 25-27 at UN headquarters in New York to formally adopt an ambitious new sustainable development agenda. This momentous agenda will serve as the launch pad for action by the international community and by national governments to promote shared prosperity and well-being for all over the next 15 years.

On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice, and fix climate change. The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done in all countries and for all people.
