Sustainable development goals (SDGs) are targets set by United Nations (2016-2030) and were adopted by 193 UN member countries as a transformative and universal framework to address five areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet which are People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership. SDGs include 17 goals and 169 targets.
Involvement of Youth, Universities, Civil Society and NGOs are very important to promote sustainable development goals. Different stake holder should know about the SDGs and can pick out goals and targets to draw attention and drive change, such as commitments to combat Hepatitis in Pakistan, to emphasize woman empowerment and to end violence against children. Having public attention on the goals can have a direct impact on whether they will be policy changes that make them happen.
