The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals established by the United Nations as being primary focus areas until the year 2030. They range from goals focused on the environment to basic human rights. The SDG’s were a primary topic discussion during the Social Good Summit. Although it is difficult to pick a “favorite” or “more important” goal, in choosing a goal, I believe goal 17, Partnerships for the Goals, will most greatly impact the success of the other goals. Without partnerships and collaboration which includes cross discipline, cross-cultural, and cross continental efforts, the goals reduce to being glamorous buzz words and unachievable.
