“…Though the scope may seem daunting, the [Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)] reflect the diverse and complex challenges that face societies around the world. … The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will hopefully galvanize unprecedented global collaboration for improving the lives of billions of people in the 21st century. Governments, businesses, non-profit organizations, foundations, and global institutions of all sorts must work together to achieve the SDGs. The commitment to ensure that everyone has a fair shot in life is a transformative principle that will require innovation, cooperation, and dedication to achieve a healthier, fairer, and more prosperous world by 2030, a world that leaves no one behind. The time for action is now” (2/10).
