There are times when you read something and it immediately resonates with you. When I received an email asking to share about #GlobalGoals, I felt it was something I wanted to learn more about and see how I could help make a difference.
On Friday, world leaders committed to tackling 17 Global Goals to achieve three extraordinary things over the next 15 years – end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and fix climate change. Imagine how different our world will be – and our kids’ world will be – after 15 years of global effort on these goals.
For a quick overview, check out this video with Jennifer Lopez, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Daniel Craig, Chris Martin, Stephen Hawking, Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Damon, Pharrell Williams and many, many others telling the world about the Global Goals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpqVmvMCmp0&feature=youtu.be
Although I support all of the goals, the ideas of no one going hungry and clean water for all seem like basic rights that all should have but unfortunately do not.
