In 2015, the United Nations created 17 Sustainable Development Goals that are expected to be achieved by 2030. All 193 Member States of the United Nations agreed on these 17 goals to end poverty, ensure prosperity, and protect the planet this.
In 2022, the United Nations again reminded members to take even more significant steps so that one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals can be achieved. What are the 17 goals? Here’s the description.
- No Poverty
End poverty in all areas. As humans, our well-being is linked to one another. Growing inequality is detrimental to economic growth and undermines social cohesion, increases political and social tensions and, in some circumstances, promotes instability and conflict.
- Zero Hunger
To end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. A world without hunger can have a positive impact on our economy, health, education, equity and social development.
- Good Health and Wellbeing
Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages. Ensuring healthy living for all takes a strong commitment, but the benefits outweigh the costs. A healthy society is the foundation of a healthy economy.
- Quality Education
Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Promoting gender equality is essential for all aspects of society, from reducing poverty to promoting the health, education, protection and well-being of girls and boys.
