These goals were adopted by world leaders in September 2015 and implemented at the start of 2016. Over 150 countries have promised to work together to put the goals into action: to eradicate poverty, to end inequality, and to address climate change. Included in Canada’s commitment to the global goals, is the promise that that no one is left behind.
The SDGs build on the work of the former Millennium Development Goals (2000-2015). The new SDGs are unique in that they’re broader in their scope of ending all forms of poverty by calling for action by all countries, to promote prosperity while protecting the well-being of the Earth and all its inhabitants.
The SDGs are truly interconnected, and progress in one area is both linked to, and dependent on, action in others. Collaboration and partnership will be necessary to the success of all SDGs.
Rayjon’s programs and efforts focus on 5 main Global Goals:
