World Leaders have committed to 17 Goals for people and planet called the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals. They did this, setting out to achieve 3 key things:
End extreme poverty
Fight inequality and injustice
Fix climate change
The Sustainable Development Goals, if successfully adopted and worked at by each country, could achieve these 3 things, so no one gets left behind.
The Sustainable Development Goals apply to all countries – including Ireland – meaning that they are universal. It does not matter whether you live in a poor or rich country. The goals apply to everyone. For this reason, and with the cooperation of everyone, the Sustainable Development Goals have the potential to change everything – how we live and work, with whom we work, our views of the world, our vision and values for the planet – today and into the future.
These challenging goals are in place from 2015 – 2030.sustainable
For all of these reasons it is, in the first instance, vital that everyone knows about the Sustainable Development Goals. This is so that we can all take action at a personal, local, national, European, or global level.
This powerpoint presentation is meant to be something you can dip in and out of. It will hopefully help you learn about the Sustainable Development Goals and how you can link the goals to your life – be it personal, work, education, community, etc.

@Malala is one of my greatest inspirations as a brave champion for gender equality and girls' education. When I quoted Malala in my first speech on gender equality at 16 years old, I never thought I would have the honour of meeting her in person at the United Nations.

Today is the opening of the #UNGA General Debate.
Watching the UN Secretary-General's powerful opening address with members of my team including Jessica Gill, one of Ireland's Youth Delegates.
Looking forward to an impressive set of statements over the week.
Happy International Day of Peace☮️🕊️!
The theme for this year's #PeaceDay is "End racism. Build peace." - two key priorities for Ireland🇮🇪.
Today, and everyday, we join @UN efforts to work towards a world free of racism and discrimination.
