The adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, with its core set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are the UN’s blueprint for achieving a happier and healthier world by 2030. But how do we all manifest these goals in our own lives?

The Be the Change initiative provides an opportunity for all of us to better “walk the talk” when it comes to the SDGs. This initiative guides and encourages us to live more sustainable in work and at home by changing our consumption patterns, using active transport such as cycling, and buying local foods. Everyone is welcome to participate. Every little step helps – inform your family, your friends and your community about simple actions they can take in their daily lives.

An easy way to start being the change is to look at our Lazy Person’s Guide to Saving the World to get inspired to live sustainable every day!

In the coming weeks we will be rolling out a series of Be the Change materials with guidance on how to organize events on sustainability within your community. It’s easy to take action – and we are going to make it easier for you to make a bigger impact!

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter: @GlobalGoalsUN for announcements on when the toolkit is available!

Let’s Be The Change together!
