GLOBAL COLLABORATION IS KEY
Secretary-General of the United Nations
The international community has made a lot of progress in achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, but overall, actions have not yet advanced at the required speed or scale. It is necessary to start a decade of "ambitious actions" in order to successfully achieve these goals by 2030. Carry out national actions including youth, civil society, media, private sector, trade unions, academia and other stakeholders.
