The Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a measure of action

 

In September 2015, the United Nations adopted the Global → Sustainable Development Goals in New York: 17 main targets, each with about 10 "sub-targets" that "will transform the world through ... the end of poverty, the protection of the earth and prosperity for all" .

In the meantime, these objectives have also been incorporated into the agreements of the Paris Climate Protection Conference. Germany has committed itself to these goals and implemented them in its → sustainability strategy. It is now the time to ensure implementation.

All actors are called upon to set these targets as a benchmark for their actions and to integrate them into their "DNA". The German Federal Association for Sustainability accompanies this process from the outset and integrates the sustainable development goals into its work:

We see goal No. 10 as the central approach to transforming the world, as it is the only one that addresses a cause.

However, the → World Inequality Report" shows that the world is moving further and further away from this goal.

To achieve the goal and for our work, we have set up a step-by-step roadmap, which is described in more detail → here.

Shaping transformation

The re-vitalization of rural areas as a priority task

 

Urbanization comes first among the 10 strongest "megatrends" for the future. Elements of this trend are predictions of the → World Urbanization Prospects der UN. They estimate that by 2050 already 66% of humanity will live in cities (after 54% in 2014 and 30% in 1950).

In many cases such forecasts are regarded as inevitable events. There are three key questions for the German Federal Association for Sustainability:

1. Are mega-cities and regions desirable?
2. Are mega-cities and regions sustainable or can they be designed that way?
3. Why do rural areas seem so unattractive in this light?

Re-vitalization of rural areas

Rural areas are settlements that seemingly fall out of perception and are increasingly subject to depopulation in Germany as well as globally. This endangers not only the territorial integrity of an area or country, but also social cohesion.

Therefore, it is in our interest to preserve these settlement areas and to focus on development.

This applies especially to the development of economic perspectives beyond the predominantly monocultural agricultural economy, which leads → to offer people in rural areas a life perspective.
