The "Lerato and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)" simplifies the goals with clear ways of how to play your part for a better world. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. The objective was to produce a set of universal goals that meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. The SDGs represent the greatest international agreement on sustainability of all time. These 17 ambitious goals relate to social development, climate issues and education and will eventually encourage human development and maintain a liveable environment for people all around the world. The SDGs target the root causes of poverty, climate change, and education and food access disparities. Also known as the Global Goals, the SDGs were officially created in 2015 and must be achieved by 2030. They were developed during the United Nations Development Summit (Rio+20) in line with the ending of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were eight goals aimed at ending poverty in the world.
