A Little Less Conversation, a Little More SDG Action

The largest call-to-action for sustainability ever was announced three years ago to the day, on September 25, 2015, when the leaders of 193 nations adopted an ambitious set of global goals to combat poverty, inequality and climate change at the United Nations General Assembly.
