This year the Global Goals for Sustainable Development come into effect to achieve three extraordinary things by 2030 – end poverty, combat climate change and fight injustice and inequality.
If we are to achieve the Global Goals by 2030 we must start by empowering girls and women.
Goals that work for women and girls are goals that will work for the world.
Today – the 8th March – is International Women’s Day, TAKE ACTION for girls and women with one of the incredible campaigns that are fighting for their empowerment.
The goals I will be backing are
5 GENDER EQUALITY
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
I personally do not understand how it is 2016 and women are still fighting to be equal! To be treated equally to men should not be a challenge, it should be normal and a part of society. Women should have to the right to earn the same as males doing the same job, we should not have to fear doing anything alone, we should not feel belittled by men in higher power.
6 CLEAN WATER & SANITATION
Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
One of the basic human needs. Water. So why do so many countries not have access to clean, safe drinking water?! We need to back this global goal to ensure EVERYONE has access to the most basic thing that is keeping us alive.
13 CLIMATE ACTION
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Climate change is happening NOW, everyone needs to pull together to stop the destruction of our planet and preserve what we have, we only have one earth so why are we so flippant with how we treat it?
