THE SDGS ARE PART OF A BREAKTHROUGH GLOBAL AGREEMENT
CALLED THE 2030 AGENDA, ADOPTED BY THE UNITED NATIONS
ON SEPTEMBER 25, 2015. THEIR PURPOSE: TRANSFORM THE WORLD.
The SDGs are UNIVERSAL. They apply to every nation, every sector, every business, and every profession– including design, architecture, and city planning.
The SDGs are about INTEGRATION. They demand a new emphasis on a systemic approach that does not sacrifice environmental and social considerations to economic gain, but rather seeks for true synergies and solutions that benefit people, nature, and prosperity.
The SDGs are about TRANSFORMATION. They challenge us to rethink the way we live, to rebuild all the systems that are degrading ecological and human health — and to make our world sustainable.
