2030 Social Impact – PGMX 2031 “Company Idea” Special Prize!
In 2015 the United Nations launched the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), 17 global objectives to create a better world for everyone by 2030. These goals want to overcome climate change and empower people through different key targets ranging from nutrition, medical care, knowledge, water and sanitation, sustainable shelter, environmental quality, access to information and communication, inclusiveness and human rights.
Today we are 10 years from the 2030 timeline and certain goals are on track to be reached, such as those related to nutrition and basic health, for others (goals), such as water and sanitation, solutions are available and it’s a matter of scaling them and accelerating adoption. These are good news!
On the other end of the spectrum, we are lagging if not regressing in personal rights and inclusiveness. Indeed since 2015 data indicate that disparities of opportunity, income and power have rose.
