Accepting the challenge – Sweden and the 2030 Agenda
Accepting the challenge is a toolkit about the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals from a Swedish perspective when it comes to both challenges and opportunities.
It aims to encourage discussions, inspire and raise awareness about the Global Goals and how everyone can contribute.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 interrelated global goals agreed upon by the United Nations.
