Health and Equality for Everyone
The Covid-19 pandemic has provided us the opportunity to see the society we have built. This is a world with great inequality which must be righted, and a world which must win the battle against climate change.

Education and Gender Equality
Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development. We can better organise the international community in order to address the climate change, inequality, pandemics such as Covid-19 and so many other aspects - if we join together and have one common strategy in favour of peace, development and human rights in the world.
Many of the Global Goals relate to and have an impact on health and well-being. Poverty and inequality are universal and undermine every society. But poverty is not natural - it is Man-made. It is an area in which the world has made huge progress during the past few decades, and over a billion people have been lifted out of poverty. Nonetheless, almost 10% of the human race is living unbelievably harsh lives.
