What is the Global Goals?
In September 2015, the leaders of all 193 member states of the UN adopted Agenda 2030, a universal agenda that contains the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The 17 Goals in turn hold 169 targets and 230 indicators.
Over the next fifteen years, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
The Global Goals is the most ambitious agreement for sustainable development that world leaders has ever made. It integrates all three aspects of sustainable development; social, economic and enviromental.
The Global Goals and Agenda 2030 builds on the success of the Millennium Development Goals and aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.
With the help of the Global Goals, we will be the first generation who can eradicate poverty and the last who can tackle climate change.
Our goal is to connect age 30 to 80+ women soccer players with recreational teams, leagues, training programs, tournaments, gear, travel and charitable organizations. We support the collaboration of women’s amateur soccer worldwide and PLAY for the United Nations 2030 Global Goals for Sustainable Development of Health and Wellness, Gender Equality and Reduced Inequalities.
