ISGlobal and the Sustainable Development Goals

On September 2015 world leaders agreed 17 Sustainable Development Goals that will mean a better life for everyone, everywhere. This agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity that will stimulate action over the next fifteen years. They are a global commitment to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, improve health, enable equality, tackle climate change and much more.
