Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.(Mark Twain)

18 Causes

On 25 September 2015, 193 world leaders adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve 3 extraordinary issues in the next 15 years. “To end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change.” Global goals can achieve this, in all countries and for all the people.

Sustainable Development Goals were reached after negotiation processes involving 193 UN Member States. But also, thanks to the unprecedented participation of civil society and relevant stakeholders. Los 18 believes that the UN Development Programme is the best starting point. Together we can decide causes that are going to improve the lives of thousands of people.
