What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officially called the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, are a set of targets agreed by the members of the United Nations in 2015, to be achieved by 2030.
The 17 goals (and their specific targets within) cover a range of different areas. They were agreed following the end of the Millennium Development Goals programme in 2015.
The ISJC is prioritising and promoting the SDGs and using them as a framework for much of our work.
You can click on each goal above for a reflection on the specific goal from a Salvation Army perspective, as well as Bible references related to the goal, prayer points and suggestions on how to take action to reach the goal. All information is drawn from the ISJC publication Go and Do Something.
You can find full information on each goal and the specific targets and indicators within them on the UN's website for the SDGs.
