WPDI’S SUPPORT OF THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
In 2015, the governments of the world came together and unanimously declared our commitment to achieving 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which call for ambitious global actions from eradicating poverty to ensuring universal education to combating climate change to building peaceful and inclusive societies. Achieving the SDGs will require the collaboration not only of world leaders, but also of NGOs, civil society, and ordinary citizens.
WPDI founder and CEO, Forest Whitaker, is a member of the UN Secretary-General’s SDG Advocacy Group to raise awareness of these goals around the world and to promote the spirit of cooperation that inspired them. In line with this new global agenda, WPDI’s programs are making substantive contributions to many of the SDGs.
