As world leaders prepare to adopt the Global Goals at the UN, the biggest ever collaboration of campaigners, artists, sports stars, performers and companies unite to tell seven billion people in seven days “It’s Time To Change The World”….reports Asian Lite News
The Global Goals campaign was announced today with a bid to reach 7 billion people in 7 days with news of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This effort is supported by a variety of existing campaigns including Project Everyone, action/2015 and Global Citizen.
This unprecedented effort – which exists to both make the goals famous and push for their full implementation – will culminate on 25th September at the UN when 193 world leaders adopt the Global Goals, a series of 17 ambitious targets to end poverty, fight inequality & injustice and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030.
India is sealing its position as a international leader economically and in technology, with potential to become a front-runner in ending global poverty. Some of the Indian public figures supporting to spread awareness of The Global Goals campaign include Akshay Kumar, A R Rahman, and Hrithik Roshan. Other global supporters include campaigners such as Malala Yousafzai and Bill and Melinda Gates; First Ladies such as Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah; educators such as Sir Ken Robinson; sports clubs such as Liverpool FC; business leaders such as Richard Branson and Paul Polman; digital and social media stars such as Porta dos Fundos; performers and artists such as Liu Bolin, and academics such as Professor Stephen Hawking.
The aims of the Global Goals – fighting poverty, inequality and climate change – have support from across the world including One Direction who on Tuesday unveiled ‘Dear World Leaders’, a film made by their fans, nearly 80,000 of whom submitted photos and videos describing the world they want to live in as part of the action/1D campaign. If the goals are famous, if people care about what has been promised by the politicians, it greatly increases their chance of being implemented.
