Agenda 2030

Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, at the Sustainable Development Summit, it was elaborated United Nations Agenda 2030 which contains the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of urgent priority to heal the planet and its people.

The (SDG) Sustainable Development Goals aim to scale up the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to achieve those goals that were not met. The central idea is that all countries, regardless of their level of development or wealth, should commit to promoting prosperity and protecting the environment. Sustainable Development Goals are not mandatory but each country assumes responsibility for working towards compliance.

In order to make progress towards achieving the SDGs, it is imperative that the world's population makes a radical change in personal behaviour towards other inhabitants of the planet.  If so, humanity will behave in a way that guarantees the health of its family groups, its regions, institutions and therefore the planet.

Addressing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals

There are 3 in particular that depend on the capacity for respect, acceptance and inclusion among the people who make up the world's citizenry -  which are: 

4. Ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

If sustainable development is to be achieved, quality education is the foundation. Education and literacy  provide people with the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty and have a better future.

The reality is that there are currently more than 265 million children out of school. Problems that need to be tackled include the poor state of schools and under-trained teachers, among others.

5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

Gender equality is a human right and the basis for achieving sustainability. Achieving equality requires that women and girls have access to education, health care, decent work and are able to participate in political and economic decision-making processes.

16. Promoting just, peaceful and inclusive societies

Peace is fundamental to achieving the other SDGs, yet violence in all its manifestations continues to be a problem for people all over the world, including child abuse maltrato infantil The key is to legislate to make the rules more effective and to protect people's rights.

Inclusive diversity policies contribute precisely to these three global sustainable development goals. It fosters interculturality and inclusion of people in spite of their differences; or rather, because of their differences that bring innovation and value. It avoids conflicts and generates development in groups, in companies and institutions, and globally.

Managing diversity inclusion is the transformation of people's behaviour that can move humanity towards sustainable growth.  It should become an educational subject throughout school and university life.  Behavioural change in companies, institutions and governments to build an environment of quality of personal, family and working life for the entire world population.

This is the great contribution that diversity inclusion management can make to achieving the sustainable growth objectives wisely agreed by the United Nations.
