The U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals are a "blueprint for fighting poverty and hunger, confronting the climate crisis, achieving gender equality and much more," according to a statement about the SDG Moment 2021 movement. The aim is to achieve the 17 goals within the next decade, which also include quality education, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities and responsible consumption and production.
