UN Sustainable Development Goals
World leaders have announced 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. In all countries. For all people. The Goals are bold: end poverty, fight inequality and tack climate change by 2030. If we are going to transform the world by 2030, we need a new approach.
The Global Goals serve as a framework for the sustainable change we’ve been creating for years. At Enactus, we’ve found an approach that works. One that creates sustainable, lasting change. Entrepreneurial Action, business Innovation that creates social impact.
We are already taking entrepreneurial action to create a better world for us all. But we’ve got more work to do.
Together, we can achieve the Global Goals.
Each year, every team gives a dynamic 17 minute presentation to a panel of guest judges from our sponsor companies, explaining their solutions and how their social enterprises are improving lives. Teams compete regionally, nationally and one team from each country goes through to the world cup every year.
