The Our2030 Lab Series aims to empower and equip young people to take action on the Sustainable Development Goals while preparing for a changing future of work.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the world’s most ambitious agenda: to achieve dignity and prosperity for all by 2030. Also known as the “Sustainable Development Agenda” or the “2030 Agenda”, the SDGs aim to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges, from poverty, inequality and climate change to achieving justice, decent work and equal opportunity.

The world’s countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, to leave no one behind. In many ways, the SDGs are the blueprint to achieve peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
