Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
The 2030 Agenda is our common plan for people, planet and prosperity, designed and decided by the world’s nations in September 2015. 193 world leaders came together to agree on 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development and 169 targets. To reach them by 2030, we must all contribute to making them a reality. BAMB-Buildings As Materials Banks contributes to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals.
“The world has achieved remarkable gains in human development over the past two decades…Yet, despite these significant gains, extreme poverty remains a key challenge… Inequalities are either high or widening, especially within countries. Unemployment and vulnerable employment levels are high in many countries, particularly among youth.
