The Global Goals

The countries of the world have agreed to achieve three extraordinary things by the year 2030: end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities and injustice and stop climate change.

In order to achieve change, the countries have set up 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, also referred to as Agenda 2030. All the goals are important and interlinked.

Mainly, it is the governments of each country who are responsible for achieving the goals and for making changes that help achieve the goals. But if the world is to have any chance of achieving them, then everyone, including you, has to be aware of the goals and get involved and fight for change! That means both adults and children. Even small actions can make a big difference.

The global goal 4 focuses on everyone's right to good education, which is closely linked to the Convention on the Rights of the Child's requirements for every child's right to go to school. As a majority of the world's 130 million children who are not allowed to go to school are girls, they are also affected, among other things. Objective 5, for greater equality

The Rights of the Child and Agenda 2030

Agenda 2030 and the Global Goals are closely linked to children’s rights according to the UN Convention for the Rights of the Child. If the goals are achieved, then the situation for children around the world will improve. If they are not achieved, it will mean that children are being treated badly and that children’s rights are not being respected. That must not happen!
