When considering the selection of our heroes to spotlight and support, we look to the UN Global Sustainable Development Goals for inspiration. These 17 goals were established and “adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals.” 1
Here are the 17 goals as adopted by the United Nations:
The mission of each future Lumenary and SparQ will undoubtedly connect to one or more of these global goals, operating at what the UN Secretary-General described as the third level of mobilization, People Action. At this level, “youth, civil society, the media, the private sector, unions, academia, and other stakeholders…generate an unstoppable movement pushing for the required transformations.”
The work of our first Lumenary at the El Camino Warrior Food Pantry aligns with a few of the global goals, including Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, and Reduced Inequalities. We look forward to spotlighting future Lumenaries and SparQs, and the change-maker missions they implement in their communities.
