The Agenda is the result of the co-operation of 193 member countries of the UN, Institutions, Civilians and is an action plan for humanity and our planet, aiming to prosperity. It is also a path for a world more just, peaceful and with prosperity in a healthy planet.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, that have been included in the Agenda support even development in the three domains: economy, society and environment. They are not just promises, but an action plan, in order to achieve a more sustainable future for the generations to come. They are also a challenge for solidarity between generations and are addressed to people of any age, civilians of small or bigger countries, in rural areas or big cities. The goal is to eliminate total poverty, fight against inequalities and take action against climate change.
