On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.
Do you want to get involved? You can start by telling everyone about them. The UN has also put together a list of actions that you can take in your everyday life to contribute to a sustainable future.
What are Dream Hubs?
Dream Hubs are a virtual space for teens anywhere on the planet to talk with other teens and selected adults who can mentor them around their dreams and aspirations in working on the UN SDGs. Adults with an expertise in the Dream Hub topic may be asked to join the conversation to mentor teens, as appropriate. Dream Hubs will have their own page on the Teens Dream website and utilize video and other chat forums to engage collaboratively in their areas of interest.
The first three areas of focus are education, arts, and agriculture for the SDGs – check out these three Dream Hubs in the drop down menu above and let us know if you are interested in starting or joining a Dream Hub!
