2015 means: transitioning to Sustainable Development Goals

Saturday, December 20, 2014

UNESCO believes many countries have made great progress towards achieving the eight worthy Millennium Development Goals proposed in 2000 which include reducing child mortality, eradicating poverty, empowering and improving the health of women, achieving universal primary education, and combating HIV/AIDS and malaria.

Of course there are detractors but this has not dented development of the succeeding Sustainable Development Goals, due for launch in September 2015.

The local council focused group Agenda 21 for Culture has been vocal in calling for centralising the role of culture in understanding and achieving the desired transformative change in the world.
