New GLOBAL GOALSCAST Profiles Bold Individuals Taking on the World’s Most Pressing Challenges, Including Migration, Gender Equality, Education, Climate Change
A new podcast has launched on Apple Podcasts, bringing listeners compelling stories of people who are tackling urgent global issues including extreme poverty and climate change and creating sustainable growth that doesn’t steal from future generations.
Co-hosted by Claudia Romo Edelman and Edie Lush, Global GoalsCast focuses on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Signed by 193 countries in 2015, the Goals have specific targets to achieve a more prosperous, peaceful and sustainable world by the year 2030.
The mission of the podcast is to mobilize a global audience of millennials to learn about the Global Goals, get involved and shape their own futures.
“Our job in Global GoalsCast is to tell you the stories of one of the most remarkable combined efforts in human history,” says Romo Edelman, a special adviser for UNICEF and expert on marketing for social causes. “One hundred and ninety-three nations have set goals for 12 years from now, ranging from ending extreme poverty to fighting climate change and making the world a better place for all.”
Achieving the 17 Global Goals will require greater collaboration and cooperation than any previous effort in history. Global GoalsCast is the first podcast to take on the challenge of tracking the entire effort.
