The UN Sustainable Development Goals….SCHOOLS TAKING ACTION 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".  

The SDGs were set up and adopted in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. They are included in a UN Resolution called Agenda 2030. 

Though the Goals are broad and interdependent, the SDGs were made more "actionable" in 2017 by a UN Resolution adopted by the General Assembly. The resolution identifies specific targets for each goal, along with indicators that are used to measure progress toward each target.  For some of the targets, no end date is given.
