A shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future
The UNSDGs were designed to transform the world. They were agreed and adopted by all United Nations member states in 2015 as a universal call to action, to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
The alignment of the UNSDGs and the place based model of community foundations is clear. The 5 P’s (people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership) in the 2030 UN Agenda capture the breadth of community foundation work and align with the core mission of community foundations – “to drive philanthropy and collaboration across communities for transformative and sustainable change”. By thinking globally and acting locally, funding local charities and community organisations can play a key role in helping to achieve the UN 2030 Agenda.
The Team at Shropshire Community Foundation are now incorporating the SDGs into our internal processes so that we can better understand and celebrate the contribution we are making against the goals.
