The Goals Are The Answer

Project Everyone
2020 created a gaping hole in progress made towards our 2030 targets and exposed the failures in our society. As we go through 2021, we need to continue working together to fight the pandemic and put the Goals at front and centre of a just, green recovery that leaves no one behind. This year is a crucial year for the Goals, that is why Project Everyone has created this colourful reminder of why the Global Goals are the answer to the world's biggest challenges.
