At the Cutting-edge of SDGs Capacity Building


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officially known as Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, is a set of seventeen aspirational "Global Goals" with 169 targets between them.

10 Key Facts on the SDGs


The breadth and depth of the SDGs is unprecedented. Adopting a rights-based approach, the new agenda aims to leave no-one behind and promote social inclusion for the most vulnerable groups. At the same time, it sets the environmental limits and critical natural thresholds for the use of natural resources.

Gaia Education is an active partner in the implementations of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Our integrative whole systems design approach has been used as a framework for developing the Achieving the Global Goals- One Community at a Time Training of Multipliers in partnership with UNESCO Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development.

Acting in collaborative partnership with over 80 institutions, we are determined to take the bold and transformative steps needed to shift the world on to a sustainable path. However supporting sustainability and regeneration globally, regionally and locally cannot happen through a one-size-fits-all approach. It needs to be supported by networks of collaboration that span the different scales of design.
