Sustainable Development Goals


Sustainable Development Goals

“On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at a historic UN Summit — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.”

BPW International's 2017 - 2020 Triennium theme is Empowering Women to Realize Sustainable Development Goals.

BPW Bowmanville is supporting this theme by focusing our efforts on Sustainable Goal #5, Gender Equality.
