On September 25, 2015, at the United Nations, New York, 193 world leaders will adopt 17 Global Goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030. The Global Goals campaign is a global collaborative effort to ensure that these “Goals are world famous and that they are successfully acted upon.”

Project Everyone was founded by Richard Curtis, filmmaker and founder of Comic Relief.

If the goals are met, they ensure the health, safety and future of the planet for everyone on it. And their best chance of being met is if everyone on the planet is aware of them.
