The UN Sustainable Development Goals

UN Global Goals

AIM2Flourish is the world’s first higher-education curriculum for business and management school students to learn about the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or Global Goals, and business' role in achieving them. As future business leaders, today's business students must be "Global Goals Leaders."

This section includes resources for professors who are using the AIM2Flourish assignment in their classrooms. We hope it will also be of interest to business leaders, citizens, and students worldwide to learn more about “The World’s Must Do List.” Professors who are using the AIM2Flourish assignment in their classrooms can find more resources here.

What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals?
The UN SDGs, or Global Goals, are the 17 biggest challenges that the world must achieve by 2030. The Goals were unanimously ratified on September 25, 2015 when the 193-Member United Nations General Assembly formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon hailed as a universal, integrated and transformative vision for a better world.
