On 25 September 2015 the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the ‘new’ global consensus on how to move towards more equal and inclusive societies that “leaves no one behind” and a development model that serves people, promotes shared prosperity, puts at its centre the respect and the protection of human rights, planetary boundaries, that fosters peace and is based on a spirit of global solidarity.
The 2030 Agenda sets a series of 17 goals (SDGs) and 169 targets to be reached by 2030. In contrast to the Millennium Development Goals, the 2030 Agenda is a Universal Agenda - UN Member States have agreed to a transformative agenda that involves both developing and developed countries alike while promoting an integrated approach. UN Member States have committed to achieve sustainable development in its three dimensions (economic, social and environmental) in a balanced, integrated and indivisible manner. The 2030 Agenda offers a new framework to shift away from the current (unsustainable) development model that has put at its centre economic growth and fiscal consolidation, leading to growing inequalities and the further concentration of power in the hands of a few.
Moreover, ten years after the Decent Work Agenda was launched by the ILO, the 2030 Agenda has renewed the global commitment to achieve decent work and social protection for all in Europe and the world.
In the framework of the 2030 Agenda, SOLIDAR’s International Network will keep working to contribute to the implementation of the decent work and social protection goals and targets to end poverty in all their forms everywhere.
SOLIDAR strongly believes that:
