The Journey of Sustainable Development: 2023 onwards
By many authorities, the concept of sustainable development began in the late 20th century. It was the United Nations, however, that brought the importance of this effort to the global stage in the year 2000 with the launch of the Millennium Development Goals. As momentum built, the original eight MDGs were expanded significantly with the creation of the SDGs that communities and schools around the world have embraced since their undertaking in 2015. The Sustainable Development Goals are carrying on the important efforts that had been initiated in 2000 with the Millennium Development Goals. Closer to home, at INTESDA, our work has only just begun, though, and the road ahead needs our continued support and efforts to raise awareness and improve the lives of people around the world. Our mission remains steadfastly that success will only be possible through ‘unity in community.’
On that note, it is our pleasure to endorse the Summit of the Future in 2024, which was recently released through the Common Agenda of the United Nations. The short version is pasted below; however, for data and details, we suggest that you visit https://www.un.org/en/common-agenda/summit-of-the-future
