UN Sustainable Development Goals
The UN’s goals for sustainable development must lead the world in a new sustainable direction. From an unsustainable direction of travel with climate change, extreme weather, plastic in the oceans and a drastically reduced biodiversity. The 17 goals, with 169 sub-goals, span economic, social and ecological sustainability. The goal is to create a fairer, more equal and safer planet where future generations can also live a good life.
Healthy and viable ecosystems are dependent on stable conditions in our earth systems, more known as the Planetary Boundaries. There are 9 vital and interacting environmental processes that life is dependent on.
The preconditions for creating social and economic welfare is a nature in balance. That is not the case today. Climate change, loss of biodiversity, dispersal of toxic substances and overexploitation of resources threatens life on earth. More extreme weather and declining biodiversity lead to reduced access to clean water and food, more spread of diseases, inhibited economic development, destabilization and conflicts. Economic, social and environmental are deeply interdependent and interacting with each other.
“Each one of us matters, has a role to play, and makes a difference. Each one of us must take responsibility for our own lives, and above all, show respect and love for living things around us, especially each other.” – Jane Goodall
