In 2015, the UN's 193 member states adopted 17 Global Goals also called Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. The Global Goals are goals for all countries in the world and for everybody around the globe. They aim to develop the world in a sustainable direction, with less hunger and inequality, more education and development, and sustainable development in the use of the planet's resources – with a particular focus that the development and improvement should benefit the poorest – formulated under the goal of 'leave no-one behind'.
