Act: Leave No One Behind
At the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals is a commitment to leave no one behind. That’s because, although we have made huge progress towards a better world, too many people have been left behind because of who they are or where they live.
Act: What do you really, really want?
In 2015 world leaders promised to put girls and women first when they signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals. Reflect on how Global Goals has put together their challenge for us.
