Get involved with the Sustainable Development Goals

Why does it matter?

End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change. Whoa. The Global Goals are important, world-changing objectives that will require cooperation among governments, international organizations and world leaders. It seems impossible that the average person can make an impact. Should you just give up?

No! Change starts with you. Seriously. Every human on earth—even the most indifferent, laziest person among us—is part of the solution. Fortunately, there are some super easy things we can adopt into our routines that, if we all do them, will make a big difference.

We’ve made it easy for you and compiled just a few of the many things you can do to make an impact.

This practical guide is a slight adaptation from the Lazy Person’s Guide to Saving the World, available in full on the Sustainable Development Goals UN website: Sustainable Development (data charges may apply)

These are only a few of the things you can do. Explore this site to find out more about the goals you care most about and other ways to engage more actively.
