UN Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations created 17 world development goals call the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They were created in 2015 with the aim of “peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.”

The SDGs emphasize the interconnected environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable development by putting sustainability at their center. The Global Peace Film Festival aligns with all 17 Sustainable Development Goals via its carefully selected programming. The festival, along with its year-round events, is structured to encourage open dialogue, using the films as catalysts for instigating change.

The 17 SDGs: No poverty, Zero hunger, Good health and well-being, Quality education, Gender equality, clean water and sanitation, Affordable and clean energy, Decent work and economic growth, Industry, innovation and infrastructure, Reduced inequalities, Sustainable cities and communities, Responsible consumption and production, Climate action, Life below water, Life on land, Peace, justice, and strong institutions, and Partnerships for the goals.
