#GlobalGoals #SDGs ==> Can we end hunger and poverty, halt climate change and achieve gender equality in the next 15 years? The governments of the world think we can. Meeting at the UN in September 2015, they agreed to a new set of Global Goals for the development of the world to 2030. Social progress expert Michael Green invites us to imagine how these goals and their vision for a better world can be achieved.
Michael Green is part of the team that has created the Social Progress Index, a standard to rank societies based on how they meet the needs of citizens.
They are using People’s Report Cards to grade each country. On 2017, how is the progress of SDGs measured using the Social Progress Index?

A fresh attitude on climate change. Al Gore’s optimistic, impassioned talk about climate change lifted spirits on a topic that has been the source of so much concern. “When any great moral challenge is ultimately resolved into a binary choice between what is right and what is wrong, the outcome is foreordained because of who we are as human beings,” Gore said.
