SINCE 1990 WE’VE MADE INCREDIBLE PROGRESS
Extreme poverty has been cut in half, millions of children’s lives have been saved and people are living longer and healthier lives than ever before
Watch the film below to see more about the progress that has been made over the past few decades, and the challenges that can be addressed if we successfully achieve the Global Goals.
It is vital that this momentum doesn’t stop. We are at a critical time, where brave choices need to be made if we want to achieve the Global Goals by 2030.
This is why this September The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are hosting Goalkeepers, an event in New York City filled with inspiring stories and driven by data, dedicated to accelerating world progress.
There will also be a celebration of stories of success, at the second annual Global Goals Awards, in partnership with UNICEF. This is the chance to recognise some truly extraordinary individuals, in front of an audience of people who can help make this change happen more quickly.
‘Goalkeepers’ will help bring together a generation of determined thinkers, doers and givers to help hit the ambitious Global Goals target, in whatever way they can.
And the best stories, speeches and solutions from the event will be shared around the world to ensure that all of you can play your part.
