The Sustainable Development Goals
Connecting Today, Creating Tomorrow
During the 2015 Social Good Summit, 193 world leaders committed to achieving 17 Sustainable Development Goals by year 2030. The Global Goals Jam is an initiative of the United Nations Development Program and the Digital Society School, it seeks to design realistic, actionable interventions for the goals. This year we will focus on the goals:
- 1 No poverty
- 3 Good health and well-being
- 5 Gender equality
- 7 Affordable and sustainable energy
- 11 Sustainable cities and communities.
Each team will have the opportunity to work on relevant challenges provided by our local and international partners such as BOOT, What Design Can Do and BBVA. These partners will be involved in the process and are able to take the solutions further in development after the event.
Beyond being shared in our channels, some of the ideas will be featured at the Social Good Summit in New York. Yours could be one of them!
