The Sustainable Development Goals, adopted in September 201 5 by 193 countries, gives us a 15 year way forward to create actions and collaborations to preserve our planet, design social programs to increase equity, food for all, build safe and healthy communities and reduce the effects of climate change. These universal SDGs goals is part of the Agenda 2030 framework, to guide UN nation members’ work during the next 15 years when implementing actions. To accomplish the SDGs, the first step is to learn what they are and create ways to implement them.
