SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)
The SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.
The SDGs are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.
Why does this matter?
A core feature of the SDGs is their strong focus on means of implementation—the mobilization of financial resources—capacity-building and technology, as well as data and institutions.
At Sapling Co, we focus on capacity building by striving to inspire and empower youths to integrate social impact-making into their everyday lives. We hope to encourage youths to consider social impact not as an additional commitment but rather as another dimension of daily activities, from supporting sustainably-sourced coffee to a professional career.
In Singapore, we are blessed to have a nurturing environment where there are accessible funding and support for all who wish to contribute to social good. Let’s share our privilege with the world.
