United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of 2030
Can we meet them here in Marin County?
Formulated over three years by tens of thousands of people from nearly 200 countries (including events in 50 U.S. cities and 73,000 online U.S. participants REF pg 3), these 17 goals seek to capture the highest aspirations of our species.
What would it take to adopt the goals across sectors for the local Marin context, and meet them?

7. In these Goals and targets, we are setting out a supremely ambitious and transformational vision.
We envisage a world free of poverty, hunger, disease and want, where all life can thrive.
We envisage a world free of fear and violence.
A world with universal literacy.
A world with equitable and universal access to quality education at all levels, to health care and social protection, where physical, mental and social well-being are assured.
A world where we reaffirm our commitments regarding the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation and where there is improved hygiene; and where food is sufficient, safe, affordable and nutritious.
A world where human habitats are safe, resilient and sustainable and where there is universal access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy.
