Action for Sustainable Development
A GLOBAL CIVIL SOCIETY PLATFORM TO ENGAGE WITH THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AGENDA
In 2015, the world’s political leaders signed a series of agreements in which they promised to begin a critical shift away from the current unsustainable and unjust development models. People around the world have called for a new approach that places them and the planet at the heart and centre of development. We must now shift how much we produce and consume, how we trade and invest, how we create and distribute wealth, how we use and preserve natural resources and how we resource our development.
We come together to inspire and commit to actions that empower all peoples, especially those who have been marginalised; and in order to collectively tackle the root causes of inequality, injustice, poverty, environmental degradation and climate change. We want a world where social and environmental development justice is assured and all people are able to live in a prosperous, healthy and peaceful environment.
This platform aims to raise awareness, build a community, hold governments accountable and share knowledge on the new agenda.
