How we’re remaining focused on Global Goals for a better world
Watch for a reminder of why it’s so important to work together for lasting change
The United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development were conceived five years ago to mobilize the world to work together to create a more equitable, sustainable future for all. And, as the pandemic changes our lives, it’s even more important to come together to help reduce poverty, improve equality and foster quality education, among other goals.
The Kid President explains it well in the video below. “In the lunchroom of the world, there shouldn’t be a cool table,” he says. “Nope. The whole lunchroom should be one big cool table — a big table, a table where everybody’s invited, where everybody has a seat, where everybody has enough.”
The supporters at Children Believe make it possible for us to continue in this mission through the pandemic, so we can continue to help communities thrive; advance child rights and protection; promote equality for girls; and partner with children for change, so children can access an education and create a better future for themselves and others.
Watch the video below as the Kid President shares more about the importance of the Global Goals, and visit childrenbelieve.ca/covid-19 to find out how you can help today.
