On 25–28 of September, world leaders came together to adopt the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious set of priorities for making a better world that will guide global development over the next 15 years.
The Goals aim to bring an end to extreme poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, protect the environment and address climate change, and encourage good governance and peace and security. They are considered by many to be the most important agreement of the 21st Century.
The Goals will apply to all countries, but are they really relevant and useful for a prosperous and developed country like Australia?
This event brought together leading thinkers from a diverse range of perspectives to discuss why these Goals are so important for Australia, the opportunities they bring for creating a better future for Australia, and how we can all contribute to making them happen.
