Aims to “Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development”.
Let's learn a little more about SDG 17.
Sustainable Development can be achieved only through strong global partnerships and cooperation. Strong inclusive partnerships at every level, starting from the grassroots, till the national, regional and global levels are quintessential. Such partnerships must be built upon principles and values, a shared vision and shared goals, which place people and the planet at the forefront. This has become even more crucial after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic which has impacted the world negatively from many aspects. Strong partnerships are key to revive the world from such negative impacts. Everyone, starting from governments, civil society, scientists, academia, the private sector and finally individuals need to come together at this crucial juncture. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its 17 goals, is universal and requires action by every single segment of society, irrespective of their roles in the society. It is essential to ensure that no one is left behind.
SGI President Daisaku Ikeda urges us to create “a consciousness of solidarity that extends to the entire world”. He shares: “Such a spirit of solidarity will provide the driving energy and basis for meeting the full spectrum of our challenges, including the climate crisis. I am certain that by rooting our actions in this spirit of solidarity and by making progress in the construction of a global society that can remain undefeated before any threat, we will leave something of immense value to future generations.”
