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.
