On August 30, 2017, the YALI RLC EA Alumni chapter of Burundi gave a talk on the theme: “SDG1 and 2: Leave no one behind”. And YBSP has had a privilege to be among the speakers on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
A set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all (No one has to be left behind) as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
“These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.” -Extracted from the UNDP official website. You can read more here.
For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you. Yes, people like you with all the potentials.
