Partnerships for the Goals

The 16 preceding goals demonstrate how we as the inhabitants of our planet can take daily action to support a better environment for us all. However, how will this make a difference on a global scale?


For the Sustainable Development Goals to be a success, partnerships between governments, scientists, academics, civil society and the private sector must be formed in order to mobilise increased resources for development, finance, better technology, capacity and trade. The goals are universal and based on shared values and principles; therefore it is down to a global commitment of both developed and developing countries to work together, take action and join the dots— Planetary’s mission!
