It’s always tough to talk about problems and even tougher to talk about solving them. In this day and age, Mankind has evolved a lot from its early status into becoming self-aware of the problems and has even found ways to overcome them. With continuous development and advancement in technology, we humans have conquered every issue we have ever faced. There is a product for every need, an item for every situation, and these days, an app for every idea but has there been no consequence? Unfortunately, the answer is a depressing one. Even though we have accomplished a lot, we have done it at a cost. That cost being, damaging the world we live in.
You would have probably heard of major world issues such as Climate Change, Pollution, and Loss of Biodiversity which are very common nowadays. The reason being that even though we are advancing in developing our countries, we have neglected mother nature and have taken it for granted. Using up the resources, we have left the waste product unattended and that has begun to take its toll on us now. ‘Improper Waste Management’ as it has been termed causes a lot of harmful effects, not only to our environment but also to the animal, marine, and human life.
The Global Goals or the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) proposed by the United Nations are objectives that are interlinked with each other to achieve a much better future through sustainability for all. There are 17 broad goals in total, each having 8-12 targets with 4 indicators to measure the progress of each goal. There has been a lot of work towards the fulfillment of the UNSDG’s and many governments and organizations are working towards the completion of the goals. The main concern of the United Nations when devising these goals was the concept of “No one getting left behind”. Alongside making the world a better place, the UNSDG’s can be taken as a blueprint to achieve a more sustainable future for all by 2030 which coincidentally is its mission statement as well. These goals are the closest we can plan towards solving those issues mentioned above. It will not be a complete reset but it will help a lot. Most of the goals can be achieved by effective planning, utilizing the latest technology, and collaboration of related stakeholders. These goals were devised in 2015 and set for completion by 2030 and we are proud to announce that we have already started working towards achieving certain UNSDG goals.
