The Global Goals

We need to make this world a better place for everyone.

In September of 2015, the United Nations launched the Global Goals. The United Nations is an international organization created to maintain international peace and security, promote sustainable development, protect human rights, uphold international law, and deliver humanitarian aid. The Global Goals are a list of issues world leaders everywhere have committed to achieve by 2030.

Now that you know the goals, share them! The only way these goals are going to work is if everyone knows about them. Tell everyone about the Global Goals. One way you can share the goals is by taking a picture of yourself with the goal that means the most to you. You can write the number of the goal on your hand, on a piece of paper, on a flag, get creative with it. Share the picture on any social media platform (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). 

I think from my last post you can probably guess which global goal means the most to me :)
It is global goal #6
