The 2030 Agenda for Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment, ad­op­ted by all UN mem­ber states, provides a shared blue­print for peace and prosper­ity for people and our plan­et.

The 17 Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals (SDGs) are an ur­gent call for ac­tion by all coun­tries in a glob­al part­ner­ship. The SDGs ad­dress glob­al chal­lenges in­clud­ing those re­lated to poverty, in­equal­ity, cli­mate, en­vir­on­ment­al de­grad­a­tion, prosper­ity, and peace and justice. 

The Goals are in­ter­con­nec­ted and it is im­port­ant that each goal is achieved and tar­geted by 2030. 

Every­one plays a vi­tal role in achiev­ing the SDGs — be­cause everything you do makes a dif­fer­ence.

There is a form­al co­oper­a­tion between Festa and the Iceland­ic gov­ern­ment in in­tro­du­cing the SDGs to Iceland­ic com­pan­ies, mu­ni­cip­al­it­ies and or­gan­isa­tions. The co­oper­a­tion in­volves vari­ous in­form­at­ive and edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams about the SDGs. 

The Na­tion­al Stat­ist­ic­al In­sti­tute of Ice­land has launched a web­site with the Ice­land data for Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goal in­dic­at­ors.
