COMMUNITY, QUALITY OF LIFE,INTRO
AND SUSTAINABLE LIVING
In the spirit of eradicating poverty and preserving the world for the future, the United Nations has established 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the world to work towards by 2030. Essentially, the goals and their 169 targets work towards economic, social, and environmental sustainability. Success in the attainment of these goals would decrease inequalities in our world and improve quality of life for all. With over half of the world’s population living in cities and the number projected to increase in the coming decades, local governments have a unique opportunity to spearhead the movement by creating inclusive and environmentally conscious communities.
