#repost  @cristinamittermeier #sdg14 is “Life Below Water” - a part of a family of Sustainable Development Goals designed with an ambitious and profound vision: to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. There is a lot of work to be done, but the power of the ocean is in its ability to transform, and its strength is in #theTide. I have been fortunate in my lifetime to have explored all of our earth’s oceans and countless waterways; to have seen firsthand that life below water is beautiful and dynamic and complex. As an ambassador for the Global Survey and #sdg14, I want to make sure you know that there are only two more months left to participate in the #globalsurvey. How do you perceive sustainable development in your country? What do you want the world to look like in 2030? Every voice counts – take the survey and help to spread the word!

On the occasion of yesterday's International Day of Light, we are thrilled to welcome @olesyarulin as the #globalsurvey ambassador for #sdg7 "Affordable and Clean Energy"! According to the UN, 13% of the global population is still lacking access to modern #electricity. The challenge is therefore to supply everyone with electricity, while energy use makes a significant contribution to climate change (about 60% of GHG emissions). In this regard, the global increase of #renewableenergies, overall measures for energy efficiency and the implementation of favorable legal frameworks are inevitable in order to "ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy"! @unitednations  SDG 7 is thus aiming at achieving the following goal: 💡By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services; 💡By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix; 💡By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in #energyefficiency;💡by 2030, enhance international cooperation to facilitate access to #cleanenergy research and technology, and promote investment in energy #infrastructure and clean energy #technology; 💡By 2030, expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying modern and sustainable energy services for all in #developingcountries  Do you address SDG 7 in your everyday life? How do you reduce your energy use or become more energy efficient? Let us know in the comments and help each other to support this #sustainabledevelopment goal! 💪🌍☉ #17throughoureyes #globalsurveysdg #sdg7

We are excited to introduce @guerelsahin as one of the official Global Survey ambassadors! Guerel will be representing SDG 13 #climateaction! 🌍 The beauty of nature has been the reason for him to turn his passion into a profession and become an outdoor and travel photographer. Since climate change concerns us all, he encourages people to integrate more climate change action into their everyday life.  What do you do for climate action in your everyday life? 🌱 Even small behavioral changes make a contribution, e.g.: 🚗 Leave the car at home more often and ride your bike or public transport instead 🍔 Eat meat less often 💡 Try to save electricity and take energy-efficient measures in your household 🏪 Go shopping more consciously (organic, regional or Fairtrade products) ♻ Try to avoid and reduce waste 👥 Join an environmental group  Tell us about your ambitions for climate action in the comments!  #17throughoureyes #globalsurveysdg #sdg13  #climatechange #nature #sustainabledevelopment #sdgs

Sustainable consumption and production comprises many different aspects. Therefore, we are excited to welcome @doina as one of our Global Survey SDGs Ambassadors for #sdg12 “Sustainable consumption and production”. Working as a model has made her more aware of massive impact that the #fashion industry has on our environment. She now uses her platform to advocate for a more sustainable fashion industry, and encourages us as consumers to be more aware when we shop. Doina highlights the importance of us being selctive when we shop, buying less, shopping secondhand, and expanding the life of the products that we already have. Thank you @doina for sharing this important message and for helping us raise awareness of the SDGs! 🙌🏻😍Now tell us, what are some considerations you make when buying clothes? 🌎🌍🌏 #17throughoureyes #globalsurveysdg #sustainablefashion #lifestyle #sustainableliving #zerowaste #secondhandclothes
What an honour to partner up with @globalsurvey17 for their #17throughoureyes initiative, spreading awareness about UN’s 17 Sustainable Development goals. I choose SDG no. 12 because while I feel very deeply about a lot of the other issues, responsible consumption and production felt like something I had to talk about as it’s a big goal of mine to promote and engage brands in within the fashion industry. Check out the link in my bio to fill in the survey 🙏🏻 By the way here I’m wearing a vintage Jaeger blazer I scored recently!  #sustainablefashion #responsiblefashion #sustainability
We are thrilled to announce Laia and Aitor from @thevaneffect as our latest #gloalsurveysdgs Ambassador. The activist couple is proud to represent SDG12: Responsible Consumption and Production, a goal that they have incorporated into all areas of their life, including in their home and through their online store @ecovanstore . They are open about their own journey toward sustainable consumption, stating that once they started noticing trash in their surroundings they became aware of the waste they were producing themselves, and started changing their consumption behaviors. They argue that there are many simple swaps that you can make in your daily life, such as bringing along a reusable bag for groceries or using a refillable bottle, and encourage us to buy LESS and BETTER. Thank you @thevaneffect for helping us raise awareness of SDG12! 🙏🏻🌲 Now tell us, what are some ways that you have incorporated #sdg12 into your daily routine? Do you think about the #waste that you produce? 🌎🌍🌏
We are happy to announce our latest #globalsurveysdgs Ambassador, @pinkyghelani 😍 She is a Kenyan public speaker using her voice to advocate for a number of important issues, including raising awareness for refugees and the importance of self-care, just to name a few. She proudly represents #sdg2 Zero Hunger, stating “Kenya is home to 44 million people and 88% of them live in rural areas and rely on the produce they get from farming to sustain them”. The country has been dealing with droughts making it hard for communities to sustain their farming practices, leading to poverty, hunger, and malnutrition.  Do people in your country have a safe access to nutritious and sufficient #food all year round? Take a picture like Pinky and tell us what your vision for our world is in 2030 – and, of course, by participating in the survey, linked in our description 🌍 #17throughoureyes #sustainabledevelopment #sdgs #tedx #sdgs2030
Kenya is home to 44million people and 88% of them live in the rural areas and rely in the produce they get from farming to sustain them. With drought being a result on seasonal rainfall, it becomes almost impossible to live sustainably on the small scale farming.Communities in arid and semi-arid regions face immense challenges, including drought, hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. Food is listed as one of our basic needs and it is inhuman that many die of hunger.  I am honoured to be listed as a @globalsurvey17 ambassador representing Kenya. My Sustainable Development Goal is SDG 2: Zero Hunger. We spoke earlier this week about what is happening in #turkana and i would love for us to talk some more about next steps and solutions. I believe there is more that can be done, that we can do, together. Its not only a select few who can take action, it's our world, our people. What do you want your world to look like in 2030?

We warmly welcome @ayandaborotho as one of our official #globalsurveysdg ambassadors! The Southafrican actress represents #sdg1 – No Poverty. As a mother of 4 children but also as a child who grew up in and around around poverty, Ayanda has chosen this goal to raise awareness of poverty and its negative consequences on access to decent education, correct food intake, political instability leading to increased risk of war and mass emigration. Apart from that she is committed towards female empowerment, social concerns and promoting indigenous languages. . Her inspiring vision for 2030: „I want my children and all other children to grown up in a world where they can have a fair chance at life without the constraints placed on them by a poverty stricken world.“ What do you want the world to look like in 2030? Tell us by taking a similar picture and telling us how would like to you see the world in 2030 through your eyes or by commenting below. #17throughoureyes . . #poverty #endpoverty #education #prosperity #equality #sdgs #sustainability #vision2030
At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 (R130)  a day. More than 80 percent of the world's population lives in countries where income differentials are widening. Those who suffer the most are children. Because poverty impacts on access to decent education, correct food intake which causes malnutrition thereby affecting the child's  development of mental thinking and healthy body. This is just one consequence of poverty. There are many including  political instability leading to increased risk of war and mass emigration all resulting in displacement of people from their countries of origin. Of course the affects on children is closest to my heart as a mother of 4 kids myself but also as a child who grew up in and around around poverty. I want my children and all other children to grown up in a world where they can have a fair chance at life without the constraints placed on them by a poverty stricken world.  I'm not only delighted but I am honoured to be part of this campaign with @globalsurvey where I have chosen to align myself with sustainable development goal to GOAL NO 1: NO POVERTY.  This is where I see the world in 2030 and I would like you to share what you want the world to look like in 2030?  In later posts I will show how you can contribute to achieving this goal.  In the meantime please click on the link on my bio to take the survey. We can't do this alone!  This is a global call to action✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿 @globalsurvey17 #17throughoureyes

Can you get around easily?⠀ ⠀ Take the Global Survey now and let the UN know which sustainable development goals are most important to you @globalsurvey17 .⠀ ⠀ I am an ambassador for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2019 Survey: “Global Survey”. I am representing #sdg 11 : #sustainable Cities and Communities”. 🏘⠀ ⠀ The SDG’s have been adopted by 193 governments in the UN, and they aim by 2030 to to create affordable, accessible, safe and sustainable cities for all - especially for the most disadvantaged in society including women, people with disabilities, children and older persons.⠀ ⠀ As a young woman who needs to use a wheelchair a lot of the time, safe and accessible transport and infrastructure is super important to me. I’m basically excluded from a lot of cities around the world because they are not accessible or safe for me. Even in my own city, I cannot travel to many areas or enter a lot of buildings because they haven’t been built with wheelchair-users in mind.⠀ ⠀ Have your say and help accelerate change.⠀ ⠀ Link in today’s story, or search for “Global Survey”.⠀ ⠀ To encourage others to take the Yale-run survey, take a photo like mine and use the hashtag #17throughoureyes ! 👀 Have your say!⠀ ⠀ #globalsurveysdg⠀ ⠀ Ps wearing my handmade crochet top 😇⠀ ⠀ [Image description: Annika stands on a wooden bridge with trees and scrub behind her.

Ricordo ancora il 24 gennaio del 2016 quando, in una I media, ho rivolto ai ragazzi di allora la seguente domanda: “Dimmi un motivo che ti spinge a frequentare la scuola?” Dopo le battute iniziali (“mi constringono mamma e papà”, “non so che fare a casa”, “io non ci volevo venire” ecc...), utilissime a rompere il ghiaccio, la questione si è fatta seria. I loro volti si sono fatti seri. Molti hanno ammesso di non averci mai pensato. Che in fondo è tutto automatizzato, ci si va senza riflettere sul “perché”. Successivamente ho chiesto per ogni singola materia un’applicazione nella vita pratica. Perché il guaio è che a scuola non si ha una visione dell’insieme. Non si coglie il profondo legame che c’è tra quelle materie e la vita. Quando poi siamo arrivati a ragionamenti del tipo: se non so fare operazioni matematiche come farò a parlare di rate con la concessionaria per comprare la macchina dei miei sogni? Se non so l’italiano, come potrò presentarmi bene al colloquio di lavoro o scrivere una lettera sentita per i 50 anni di matrimonio dei miei nonni? Se non conosco la storia, come voterò coscientemente o valuterò con obiettività gli accadimenti quotidiani. Se non possiedo nozioni d’arte, come riconoscerò  il valore del mio paese, la bellezza del centro storico della mia città? Se non studio geografia, come potrò valutare la meta più esclusiva per il viaggio dei miei 30 anni o capire dove andrò a fare il gemellaggio... Il punto è che non avendo coscienza di quello che l’istruzione apporta, di come migliora la vita, di come fornisce mezzi personali per reinventarsi e trovare il proprio posto in questo mondo come si può, poi, avere sensibilità per chi questa fortuna non ce l’ha? Partiamo da noi, sfruttiamo ogni occasione a disposizione e puntiamo a degli obiettivi collettivi, sensibilizzandoci verso quei 57 milioni di bambini, di età scolare, a cui è completamente eluso ogni futuro, perché privati
#repost @cristinamittermeier ・・・ For me, the concepts of enoughness and sustainability are intertwined.

As an official Global Survey Ambassador, @cristinamittermeier represents the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No.14 – Life Below Water: “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development” . Do you think life below water should be more protected in your country? And do you have any ideas how to have a positive impact on oceans and marine life through your daily actions? . Here are some ideas: * Make safe, sustainable seafood choices (e.g. eat less sea food, only buy seafood with certifications) * Don’t purchase items that exploit marine life (i.e. coral jewelry, shark products, etc.) * Limit plasticpackaging, buy and use reusable containers & cups * Organize a beach or city clean-up in your city, e.g. with @4ocean * Support organizations that protect the oceans, like @sealegacy @nature_org @oceanconservancy and others . . Anything to add…? Let us know! . . #17throughoureyes #sdgs #sdg14 #globalsurveysdg #oceans #plasticpollution #marinelife

As an official Global Survey Ambassadress, @xenia represents the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No.5 – Gender Equality: “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”  Do you think gender inequality is an issue in your country? And do you have any ideas how to stand up for more gender equality in your daily life?  We did some brainstorming in our team and came up with the following ideas: *Use social media to bring attention to gender imbalances * Support films with female leads and directors * Stand up to street harassment * Walk the talk about income inequality: Support equal pay for equal work * Include boys and men in the conversation * Find female mentors/leaders  Anything to add…? Let us know! 👩🏽‍🦰👱🏻‍♀️💪🏼 . . . #genderequality #17throughoureyes #sdgs #globalsurveysdg #inequality #femalepower
The world's oceans - their temperature, chemistry, currents and life - drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind. The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals aim to manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems from pollution, as well as address the impacts of ocean acidification.  It will take awareness, followed by action that then becomes new habits and a new way of living. If we all do our part, big and small, we can achieve this goal. Our lives depend on it.  What does sustainability mean to you? What do you want the world to look like in 2030? As an ambassador for the Global Survey, I encourage you to take a few minutes to complete the Global Survey, link in my bio, and help accelerate the process of change.

#repost from @xenia by @BatchSave ••• Gender equality and female empowerment mean so much to me. I was just a little girl from a small Swiss town trying to make it in this big world. I didn’t know how much prejudice and what an uphill battle I would have to fight to get to where I am right now - and feel fully empowered and independent to continue to build my own path however I want to. And the conversation about equality of the sexes is one I am still having now on a daily basis. I want you girls and guys to be part of it with me.. and I couldn’t be more proud to announce that I have been appointed as the official ambassadress for the @globalsurvey17 representing #sdg 5: #genderequality. In my future posts and stories, I will show you how we can contribute to achieving this goal. For now I just want you to think about what do you want the world to look like in 2030?  #17throughoureyes #feminist #globalgoals
