NEW YORK/UNITED NATIONS - In a historic and unparalleled step, 193 countries agreed to reach the 17 Global Goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change by the year 2030.


Cinema for Peace supported our partner and filmmaker Richard Curtis ('Mr. Bean', 'Notting Hill', 'Red Nose Day', 'Live8') in New York to make The Global Goals famous to 7 billion people in 7 days. Cinema for Peace contributed to the Global Goals campaign - including the film and the concert in Central Park - with video-messages and connections with ambassadors.

Cinema for Peace member Kweku Mandela opened the Global Citizen Concert in Central Park with calls to action and messages by Michelle and Barack Obama, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Melinda and Bill Gates, Bono, Hugh Jackman, and Nobel Peace Price laureate Malala, among many others.

The Global Citizen Concert was an inspiring example of how every film artist can use his or her trademark to transform the world. Our honoree Leonado DiCaprio was present at the concert as UN Messenger of Peace for the fight against climate change, and Daniel
Craig ('James Bond') was there as UN Global Advocate for the Elimination of Mines and Explosive Hazards.


Every artist, every citizen, everyone can support the Global Goals. Please share these links with everybody you know.

We can be – we must be - the first generation to end extreme poverty.
The generation most determined to fight injustice and inequalities.
And the generation that saves the planet from climate change.

And this is how it will get done. The Global Goals – a 15 year plan for everyone, everywhere – with no one left behind.

1.    We will live in a world where nobody anywhere lives in extreme poverty.

2.   We will live in a world where no-one goes hungry, no one wakes in the morning, asking if there will be food today.

3.   We will live in world where no child has to die from diseases we know how to cure and where proper healthcare is a lifelong right for us all.

4.   We will live in a world where everyone goes to school - and education gives us the knowledge and skills for a fulfilling life.

5.   We will live in a world where all women and all girls have equal opportunities to thrive and be powerful and safe. We can’t succeed if half the world is held back.

6.   We will live in a world where all people can get clean water and proper toilets at home, at school, at work.

7.    We will live in a world where there’s sustainable energy for everyone – heat, light and power for the planet without destroying the planet.

8.   We will live in a world where economies prosper and new wealth leads to decent jobs for everyone

9.   And we will live in a world where our industries, our infrastructure and our best innovations are not just used to make money – but to make all our lives better.

10. We will live in a world where prejudices and extremes of inequality are defeated - inside our countries and between different countries.

11.  We will live in a world where people live in cities and communities that are safe, progressive, and support everyone who lives in them.

12. We will live in a world where we replace what we consume – a planet where we put back what we take out of the Earth.

13. We will live in a world that is decisively rolling back the threat of climate change.

14. We will live in a world where we restore and protect the life in our oceans and seas.

15. We will live in a world where we restore and protect life on land - the forests, the animals, the earth itself.

16. We will live in a world with peace between and inside countries, where all governments are open and answer to us for what they do at home and abroad - and justice rules, with everyone equal before the law.

17.  And we must live in a world where all countries and we, their people, work together in partnerships of all kinds, to make these Global Goals a reality for everyone, everywhere.

These are the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Agreed on by our 193 countries.

This is the plan. Let’s get to work. Let’s make it happen.

A historic moment on September 25: the UN agrees on the Global Goals.
