Imagine by the year 2030…

Screenshot 2017-04-27 21.59.52…you could eradicate extreme poverty, inequality, injustice, and fix climate change. With the help and support of all 193 Member States in the United Nations, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of 2030 can be achieved.

Although the world has made remarkable strides by cutting more than half of extreme poverty rates since 1990, over 800 million people are still struggling on less than $1.25 per day.

By 2030, the SDGs hope to end poverty in all its forms, everywhere. The goals not only ensure economic resources and basic services, but also ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, appropriate new technology and financial services.

Targeting 169 aspects of these 17 Sustainable Development Goals may seem impossible to achieve by 2030. However, working together to transform our world free from poverty and achieving the SDGs by 2030 is practical and the solutions are easy. For example, The Lazy Person’s Guide to Saving the World is a call to action from your couch!

The smallest actions can make a big difference and the smallest person can be a big component to fix climate change and fight for equality. The Lazy Person Guide to Saving the World encourages everyone to do their part in sustaining the planet. Being a couch potato can positively help the planet. The UN highlights how the actions of sofa superstars, household heroes, and the neighborhood nice guy can impact the prosperity of the planet. Imagine by the year 2030, we can be agents of change and invest in the future we want.
