At this year’s UN General Assembly, world leaders will launch the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These commit us to fighting injustice, inequality, poverty and climate change for the next 15 years. On 25 September, Pope Francis will make a historic address to the UN, rallying world leaders to his causes of climate change and poverty. On 26 September, Global Citizen’s Festival in Central Park will highlight the goals and campaign for global action. Some other key events will include UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Helen Clark (the head of UNDP) on how to turn the goals into a reality. And a Solutions Summit will highlight technologists, scientists and engineers with bright ideas to achieve the new goals.
