Zo dragen wij bij aan de SDG's
The SDGs pose a set of complex challenges and opportunities. These do not respect boundaries between sectors, they can require deep transformations and they require action at all levels. Therefore, it is necessary to join the forces of actors from diverse sectors, leaving no one behind.
The SDG Charter signatories have committed to individual and joint action on the SDGs. They are front runners, inspiring others to join. In order to achieve the SDGs, this has to grow into a critical mass of individuals and organizations working towards the SDGs.
Therefore, the SDG Charter Foundation aims to have the following impact:
Impact: Critical mass of actions on the SDGs
Once this tipping point is reached, the SDG Charter Foundation has fulfilled its role and can dissolve itself. The Charter does not bear sole responsibility for achieving this impact, as this will be the result of actions by many.
In order to reach and sustain this critical mass, the goal of the Charter is to build a solid foundation of action on the SDGs.
