The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s best plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. Adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, the SDGs are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the environment. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, equality and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and working to preserve our ocean and forests.
Goal 17 seeks to strengthen global partnerships to support and achieve the ambitious targets of the 2030 Agenda, bringing together national governments, the international community, civil society, the private sector and other actors.
The Humble Smile Foundation brings together people that have chosen to share the responsibility of preventing oral disease. We work with like-minded organisations to invest in developing and testing ideas at the operative level, improving and diffusing the knowledge, to ultimately form initiatives for the promotion of humanitarian innovation within and across organisations, that make a real difference to the lives of many.
