At the heart of this strategy are the Global Goals weaved into each travel itinerary design to address both the environmental footprint and the economic empowerment of our business and operations. These 17 Global Goals are anchored to the UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We currently have five trips that support eight goals, with room for expansion for future trips. Each partner to collaborate with The World Within Us contributes in the most impactful way possible to achieve the Global Goals by 2030.
our 2030 agenda and goals
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
WHY WE ALIGNED OUR GOALS WITH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
As global travelers, it is our responsibility to travel sustainably, ethically, and responsibly. The Sustainable Development Goals provide a globally accepted framework to mobilize citizens to lead with action into 2030 and beyond. It is important as travelers to have awareness of the social, political, and economic factors that impact a country. The Sustainable Development Goals allow us to focus on critical areas of action and explore how we as travelers can contribute to creating a more unified, sustainable, and prosperous world. The Citizens Agenda gives everyday people the opportunity to get involved in the Global Goals and accelerating the completion of the 2030 agenda.
ACCOUNTABILITY OF SOCIAL GOOD
The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals are the road-map for how we can achieve a better and sustainable future for us all by 2030. It's a call to action to eliminate poverty, fight inequalities, grow economies, and tackle climate change within the next 15 years. It’s one of the most incredible to-do lists ever written with targets and indicators to measure our success - time to turn words into action!
