The year 2015 saw the approval of the
2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
with the goal of making the planet a better place. As a result of this, what is known as the Sustainable Development Goals (ODS). This is a list of seventeen global priorities adopted by the United Nations and its member countries. The aim is to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved by 2030.
At Smile and Learn we are working on a series of videos about the Sustainable Development Goals to make children aware that addressing these goals is a task for all of us.
As this week is International Women’s Day, we share with you the video about the fifth of the SDGs:
We call gender equality to a situation in which all peopleRegardless of their gender, they have the same opportunities, rights and benefits and are treated with respect in all aspects of their lives. Equality is not only a fundamental human rightIt is not only a fundamental human right, but one of the foundations for building a peaceful and sustainable world.
Although much progress has been madewomen and girls around the world still do not have access to the same opportunities as men. To put an end to this situation, it is important to reform certain laws, revise certain customs and promote policies that will put end the injustices against all women and girls around the world.
