The global goals we've made progress on -- and the ones we haven't | Michael Green
"We are living in a world that is tantalizingly close to ensuring that no one need die of hunger or malaria or diarrhea," says economist Michael Green. To help spur progress, back in 2015 the United Nations drew up a set of 17 goals around important factors like health, education and equality. In this data-packed talk, Green shares his analysis on the steps each country has (or hasn't) made toward these Sustainable Development Goals -- and offers new ideas on what needs to change so we can achieve them.

A Look at the Sustainable Development Goals
https://www.globalgoals.org On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders will commit to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality & injustice. Fix climate change. The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people. If the goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them. You can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are. You can’t convince world leaders to do what needs to be done if you don’t know what you’re convincing them to do. If the goals are famous, they won’t be forgotten. We can be the first generation to end extreme poverty, the most determined generation in history to end injustice and inequality, and the last generation to be threatened by climate change.

Building the Future. Children and the Sustainable Development Goals in Rich Countries
In high income countries, 1 in 5 children lives in poverty. 1 in 3 fifteen year olds does not meet minimum education standards in reading, science and math. 1 in 8 children faces food insecurity. The UN sustainable development goals are a roadmap for improving the lives of children — in rich and poor countries alike. New research from UNICEF ranks countries on how well prepared they are to meet their goals. Sustainable development means protecting the rights of all children, no matter where they live.

Are we on track to realize the global goals?
The Sustainable Development Goals are a plan to completely reshape our world for the better in just 15 short years. Are we on track to realize these goals? The latest Sustainable Development Goals Report 2018 tells us that while more people are living better; there are mounting challenges for countries to overcome to realize the goals. Climate change, conflicts, inequality, poverty, rapid urbanization, rising trade tensions, elevated debt levels and a rise in hunger are among those hurdles. The pace of action to realize the goals is too slow. We need to do more, faster! The world will come together at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) to asses our efforts. 47 countries stand ready to share their efforts, lessons learned and experiences to meet the globally agreed goals.

China's trillion dollar plan to dominate global trade
It's about more than just economics. To learn more, visit https://reconnectingasia.csis.org/map/ Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO China's Belt and Road Initiative is the most ambitious infrastructure project in modern history. It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view.

The official ceremonies for WORLD TOURISM DAY have taken place in the presence of President Professor Dr. Anton Caragea and having in observance members of European Council on Tourism (ECTT) and Trade, European Tourism Academy, diplomatic corps accredited to ECTT and members of PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDG). In the opening ceremonies for the World Tourism Day Professor Dr. Anton Caragea has made the long-awaited announcement: The Ambassadors for Tourism and Sustainable Development Goals programme will continue in the next year. As a result of the demands coming from leaders, statesman`s and peerless world personalities involved in the carving of new development strategies and in implementing United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda we have taken the decision to further implement the program and to entrust the European Council on Tourism and Trade and PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS SDG to continue the implementation of the program in the years to come. On the same occasion Professor Dr. Anton Caragea announced the good news that: the international Campaign for the implementation of 2030 Agenda of United Nations, known worldwide as SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA, in the work of parliaments across the world has reached a first milestone, only after a year of existence, with the support of 262 parliamentarians from 22 national parliaments. Now with this threshold passed, the Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s, is now endorsed across party lines, ideologies and national agenda`s by more than 262 current members of parliament from over 22 countries. The creation of a Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s in the UN framework for world cooperation in the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals that was signed by the lawmakers calls for “a gradual implementation of Sustainable Development Goals in all national and local parliaments and elected assemblies agenda creating a global synergy for world level campaign aimed at bringing to life the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA” The role of Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s is “to ensure international cooperation, secure the acceptance and to enhance the legitimacy of the United Nations SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA and strengthen the elected representatives ( parliamentarians) capacity to act and to be more effectively and directly included into the activities of implementing and financing the programs related to SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA.” “This is an important milestone,” remarked Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, the Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s Executive President and campaign’s coordinator. “The support of a UN Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s by such a broad group of parliamentarians from all the world’s regions shows once again that it is high time for the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA to be recognized as paramount for world development,” he concluded. “If it comes to democratizing the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA and to insure global cooperation, than the Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s is the venue for a technical and democratic debate, said Professor Dr. Anton Caragea. “The SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS AGENDA would benefit from involving elected representatives in its deliberations. After all, in many cases it’s them who are needed to help implement UN policy at the national level, especially if it comes to the Agenda 2030,” said Mr. Catalin Nechifor from Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s . On this momentous occasion the new logo of the Parliamentary Assembly for SDG`s was unveiled by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, the Executive President. We must note that: apart from members of parliaments, the campaign has also been endorsed by numerous former members of parliaments, distinguished scholars, cultural innovators, representatives of civil society organizations, and many committed citizens from all walks of life. European Council on Tourism and Trade and European Tourism Academy had created and pioneered the PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS SDG`s uniting world parliaments in the efforts to implement in their work and legislation measures dedicated to bring to life SDG in every nation.

They not only contribute to greener economic growth, but also provide timber, food, fuel and medicine for more than a third of the world’s population. They are our life-support system. We must manage forests sustainably as it is forests that make sustainable development possible.

[Focus] The paradox! Non-binding 'Global Goals' vs binding trade agreements
On one hand governments have adopted the non-binding Global Goals for Sustainable Development and on another hand these are very same governments negotiating binding trade agreements and indulging in other activities that exacerbate myriad range of inequalities, inequities and injustices in our world! Paul Quintos of IBON International calls for being cautious if not skeptical of the post 2015 Global Goals. Trade negotiations and other such activities of governments have erected a framework of rules that allow global corporations to veto laws and regulations that governments may adopt or implement hat may go against their bottomline. In this context, how can we see governments to be credible in their pledges to achieve 'Global Goals' and realize human rights! He spoke with CNS on sidelines of UN General Assembly in New York. Governments were raising ambitions in terms of Global Goals and targets for 2030, but at the same time tenaciously avoiding making commitments in terms of public financing. Governments give an impression that there are not enough public resources to fund development agenda, so they need to turn to private sector. Public Private Partnership (PPP) serves the interest of private sector and does not matter if 'public' is there in PPP model! Private sector provides finances and public sector provides guarantees of revenue streams. Paul shares "Our hope is not just limited to Global Goals but in how do we continue to challenge unjust and unequal distribution of power and wealth." The theme of Global Goals processes has been 'No One Left Behind'. Paul says that we need to acknowledge that people are 'not left behind' but deliberately pushed back by current mode of development.

A trade union focus on the Sustainable Development Goals
Through their everyday work on upholding freedom of association, social dialogue and collective bargaining, on promoting decent work and the rights of working people, trade unions are instrumental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through the ITUC’s Trade Union Development Cooperation Network (TUDCN), trade unions are heavily involved in the SDG process at global, regional and national level. The members of the TUDCN are stepping up their efforts to contribute to the SDGs and to demand accountability to the commitments undertaken by governments. They are conducting their own national monitoring and analysis to make sure that countries are on track to fulfil their commitments. For more information on this work see www.ituc-csi.org/2030Agenda

H.E. Prime Minister of Kingdom of Cambodia and GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS, Academician HUN SEN has presented his lofty vision for his country, for United Nations and for the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030. Attending the General Debate of the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, as the GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS and as the Head of the newly elected 6th mandate Royal Government of Cambodia, Prime Minister made a statement highlighting the new images of Cambodia with stable democratic process and remarkable socio-economic achievements following the attainment of full peace and stability which prevail all over the country. He underlined the government’s continued commitment to enhance people’s well-being in line with the soon to be adopted “Cambodian Sustainable Development Goals.”. “On international affairs, Prime Minister raised concerns about the threat of unilateralism that has undermined multilateral system, hindered global efforts to address SDGs, to tackle climate change and other common security challenges. Prime Minister appealed for respect of the UN Charter and avoidance of domestic interference in the pretext of political rights protection. He raised specific case of Cambodia where some external circles, who have fed on ambition to interfere in the domestic affairs of Cambodia, still fail to see the quality and integrity of our election process by issuing statements against or attacking the election outcome. Such actions are a serious assault on the will of the Cambodian people,” H.E. Prime Minister HUN SEN was elected as the only head of state to date to present to the world a concise and effective vision of completion of SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

What can we do right now to implement Sustainable Development Goals? | Prof Jeffrey Sachs
00:15 - Millenium Development Goals - a missed opportunity. How might we have done things differently? 09:56 - What are the best way to implement to Sustainable Development Goals both locally and globally? We have a “moral obligation” to help achieve UN sustainable development goals Professor Jeffrey Sachs has been awarded the UCD Ulysses Medal for his global contribution. He is widely considered to be one of the world’s leading experts on economic development, global macroeconomics, and the fight against poverty. His work on ending poverty, overcoming macroeconomic instability, promoting economic growth, fighting hunger and disease, and promoting sustainable environmental practices, has taken him to more than 125 countries with more than 90 percent of the world’s population. For over thirty years, Professor Sachs has advised dozens of heads of state and governments on economic strategy, in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. He is Special Advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the Sustainable Development Goals, and previously advised both UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on the Millennium Development Goals. Time Magazine has twice named Professor Sachs among its 100 most influential world leaders. The New York Times has said he is “probably the most important economist in the world.” The Economist Magazine has ranked Professor Sachs among the world’s three most influential living economists of the past decade. After receiving the UCD Ulysses Medal, Professor Sachs addressed the 1,000-strong audience who turned out to hear him speak. “We are not spectators in an unfolding drama, we are the participants and the protagonists who are needed to help shape the kind of future that we want,” he said. “There is nothing automatic about the success of these goals or automatic about their failure.” “… I am a firm believer that these goals are realistic, that they are achievable, and that they are important, and that our job is to do whatever we can to make them be achieved,” he declared. “This is something for human well-being, and because it’s within reach, it is our moral obligation to help it to be reached.” The 17 UN sustainable development goals are: - 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 production and consumption - climate action - life below water - life on land - peace, justice and strong institutions - partnerships for the goals Professor Sachs served as the Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University from 2002 to 2016. Appointed University Professor at Columbia University in 2016, he also serves as Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University. Prior to joining Columbia, Sachs spent over twenty years as a professor at Harvard University, most recently as the Galen L. Stone Professor of International Trade. A native of Detroit, Michigan, Sachs received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees at Harvard. Professor Patrick Paul Walsh from the UCD School of Politics and International Relations, College of Social Sciences and Law, University College Dublin, delivered the official citation at the award ceremony. The UCD Ulysses Medal is the highest honour that University College Dublin can bestow. It was inaugurated in 2005, as part of the University’s sesquicentennial celebrations, to highlight the ‘creative brilliance’ of UCD alumnus James Joyce. It is awarded to individuals whose work has made an outstanding global contribution. Previous recipients include: former US President, Bill Clinton; world-leading intellectual and linguist, MIT Professor Noam Chomsky; and world's most influential philosopher, Professor Jürgen Habermas.

How to Achieve Your Most Ambitious Goals | Stephen Duneier | TEDxTucson
How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder. In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams. For thirty years, he has applied cognitive science to investing, business and life. The result has been the turnaround of numerous institutional businesses, career best returns for managers who have adopted his methods, the development of a $1.25 billion dollar hedge fund and a rapidly shrinking bucket list. Mr. Duneier teaches graduate courses on Decision Analysis in UCSB’s College of Engineering. His book, AlphaBrain is due for release in early 2017 from Wiley & Sons. Through Bija Advisors, he helps business leaders improve performance by applying proven, proprietary decision-making methods to their own processes. His artwork has been featured around the world and is represented by the Sullivan Goss Gallery. As Commissioner of the League of Professional Educators, Duneier is using cognitive science to alter the landscape of American education. He is the former Head of Currency Option Trading at Bank of America and Emerging Markets at AIG International. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

How do the global goals help explain 'integrated development'?
Many understand the post-2015 sustainable development agenda as a universal framework. Goals and targets apply to both developed and developing nations, which are meant to work together toward solutions to systemic problems. Does this concept of universality help define what we mean by "integrated development"? Tony Pipa, U.S. special coordinator for the post-2015 development agenda explains. For more on how an intentional, integrated approach to the design, delivery and evaluation of programs make an enduring difference in people’s lives, follow the hashtag: #IntegratedDev.

The International Fair Trade Charter offers a general explanation of the shared vision and values of the Global Fair Trade movement. It has three main aims: 1. To support the work of Fair Trade Organizations in raising awareness among consumers and citizens of the importance and impact of Fair Trade, so that more people will be inspired to join and support it. 2. To facilitate collaboration among Fair Trade Organizations by connecting their specific missions and strategies with the common philosophy of the movement, and to promote collaboration with the solidarity economy, organic agriculture movements and others that fight for similar goals to the Fair Trade movement. 3. To enable others who work with Fair Trade Organizations (in government, academia or the private sector) to recognise the values and approaches that unite the global movement.

Korean companies take on UN Sustainable Development Goals
SDGs 지속가능경영 이행하는 국내 기업 늘어나고 있다 The UN has adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For an increasing number of Korean companies, these pose 17 ways to grow their businesses. Oh Soo-young tells us more about these new business initiatives that Korean companies are implementing. Ending poverty, realizing gender inequality, and tackling global warming,... These are some of the challenges Korean companies are taking on,... in line with the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, for the year 2030. "Regardless of industry or size, companies can adopt SDG principles across the board,... in corporate policies, supply chains, management and even R&D. There are also infinite possibilities for innovation involving new products and services." KT Corporation is one such example. The country's communication giant aims to fully align its corporate strategy with the SDGs, through state of the art ICT and ethical business practices. "Our main areas of focus include health care applications, smart energy, and the environment. We will also enforce ethical governance and supply chain management within our affiliates." Also, venture companies are coming up with innovative products and services. Take this company in Southern Seoul. It makes trendy phone accessories, high quality scarves, clothing,.. and fine leather bags. "You have cashmere in Mongolia, leather from African countries and wood products in Indonesia. But the problem is that many of the companies in developing countries do not have a business model or channel to sell their goods independently. And that's where we come in." Discussing SDGs as an essential framework for Korean businesses, experts gathered at a forum held by UN Global Impact Korea. "Based on the universal values regarding human rights, labor, and the environment,.. the SDGs set a clear, long-term direction - vital for corporate success as well as economic growth. A fraction of conglomerates and mid-sized companies are on the right track. However, many CEOs, especially those of SMEs, lack awareness and focus mainly on short-term profits." "Experts say the key is thinking longer term. By looking further ahead, business leaders can invest in a sustainable value chain that meets global standards. relevant government policies should promote and nurture these efforts.
