The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030. Click on any specific Goal below to learn more about each issue.

We have done extensive work in this area.


Our regular events are nearly always linked to a sustainable development goal or several sustainable development goals. These present the opportunity for people to learn about the SDGs and engage with experts in different subject areas. These events also often involve government officials which allows citizens to ask them questions about the engagement with the SDGs.


We regularly promote the SDGs through our annual publication, website, social media channels. We have created hundreds of SDG bookmarks and other materials to support New Zealanders to learn about the SDGs. 


We have undertaken many projects that related to the SDGs. One example being the Access Radio Podcasts which host experts to discuss each SDG. 


We have produced various publications contributing to the SDG discourse. Such as, our intern research reports, our annual publication and through our partnership on the Peoples Report on the SDGs.  


Our past conferences have focused on the SDGs and we supported the first SDG conference in Auckland in 2019. We have a Special Officer for Sustainable Development who works solely on this areas, forming partnerships and writing quarterly reports on developments. 


We have produced the UN WebQuest project which is an online site that provides both students and teachers with classroom ready materials on the Sustainable Development Goals. This project continues to grow and reach more young people through a partnership with The Children's University. We have also partnered with 'She can code' supporting young women to code and create a tech based project that works to progress one or more of the SDGs. 


Our branches run regular events such as model UN's in highschool's that allow young people to engage with the SDG's and UN Youth run many regional, national and international events which promote education of and engagement with the Sustainable Development Goals.
