THE GLOBAL GOALS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)3 are 17 goals adopted by the UN in 2015 to end poverty, promote sustainability and ensure global prosperity by 2030.
We are doing out part to aid the goals in being met by fuelling cooperation between our donors/investors, young talent and partners to make the world a better place for everyone.
For more information on the specifics of the individual SDGs check out our blog series or visit the SDG website.
WHY YOUNG TALENT AND THE SDGS?
Startups and innovators have long proven their ability to develop and implement out-of-the-box solutions for global issues.
We strongly believe that if given the right support, more creative entrepreneurs can make an impactful contribution to solving local issues accelerating us towards achieving the UN SDGs.
