The Global Goals For Sustainable DevelopmentOn September 25th 2015, 193 member states of the United Nations adopted a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals which will guide the social, economic and environmental actions everybody takes to achieve a sustainable future by the year 2030. This landmark agreement serves as a framework of global aspirations for the world to commit to in order to address the biggest global challenges of our time. They call upon all stakeholders - governments, businesses, civil society, academia and of course, youth, to work together in creating solutions that will meet the goals and their targets.

This is why Living Green Cameroon has come together to take collective action to create sustainable solutions.
