What are Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The UN Summit of 2015 was indeed a historic one; the world leaders adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. However, the goals didn’t come into force until 2016. With the aim of achieving these goals, member countries of UN will deploy efforts to put an end to poverty, eliminate inequalities, and curb climate change.

What We Do

Initiative 17 gives a way to the young leaders, students, and innovators to voice their concerns regarding the environment, suggest solutions for sustainable development, and seek support while bringing about a change in their communities concurrently.
