17 Global Goals - Today's children as Improvement Agents

Date posted: 25 Feb 2016

Humanity is facing deep-seated global crises, some with potentially catastrophic consequences for all of us if we don't act.  See www.globalgoals.org and www.undp.org.

In September 2015 World Leaders committed to the "Global Goals for Sustainable Development".

There is a to-do list of 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years - from 2016 to 2030 - during the critical development years of today's schoolchildren.

WE ARE ALL STAKEHOLDERS.  We can all work together to achieve 3 important advances for humanity:

1.    End extreme poverty

2.    Fight inequality and injustice

3.    Fix climate change.

If every school in the world teaches children about these goals, we will help them become the generation that changed the world.

Our values-themed programmes are giving children and young people opportunities to develop essential attitudes, life skills and knowledge to flourish, whatever their starting points in life and whatever their innate abilities.

With the right values, children can begin to use their talents and energy to contribute to solutions to the serious issues we all face. 

Supporting the HUMAN VALUES FOUNDATION in turn supports teachers , who are nurturing the young citizens who can transform the world for the better for all now and for generations to come.
