Ten Years to Transform Our World

  • The Sustainable Development Goals—our shared vision to end poverty, rescue the planet and build a peaceful world—are gaining global momentum.

With just 10 years to go, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise—by mobilizing more governments, civil society, businesses and calling on all people to make the Global Goals their own.

Decade of Action to Deliver the Global Goals

As complex, frustrating, chaotic and confusing as our world may seem, there is evidence of progress—extreme poverty and child mortality rates are falling and access to energy, education and to decent work is rising. But we are far from the world we want.

The Decade of Action calls for accelerating sustainable solutions to all the world’s biggest challenges—ranging from poverty and gender to climate change, inequality and closing the finance gap

The Decade sf Action will:

Mobilize everyone, everywhere

We will work to create an unstoppable force linked to the Global Goals.

We will identify risks to ensure no one is left behind.

This requires each of us to take action—individually and collectively, locally and globally.

Demand urgency and ambition

We must be the generation to end extreme poverty, win the race against climate change and conquer injustice and gender inequality.

We will hold leaders to account and point to what is possible when action delivers results.

Supercharge ideas to solutions

We will shine a light on solutions that expand access and demonstrate the possibilities of ideas.

We will drive sustainable innovation, financial investments and technology—while making space in our communities and cities for young people to lead.

Why we are hopeful

The spirit of human endeavor has demonstrated our shared ability to deliver the extraordinary. The 2030 Agenda is our roadmap for the world we all want. The Global Goals are our best hope—for people, for planet, for prosperity, for peace and for partnerships.


It’s time to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals.
