The new agenda is people-centred, universal, transformative and integrated. It calls for action by all countries for all people over the next 15 years in five areas of critical importance: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership. The agenda recognises that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with a plan that builds economic growth and addresses a range of social needs, while tackling climate change.
The Sustainable Development Agenda will then officially be adopted by world leaders. DIALOGUES AND KEY EVENTS During the Summit, there will be six interactive dialogues around the following themes: ending poverty and hunger tackling inequalities, empowering women and girls and leaving no one behind fostering sustainable economic growth, transformation and promoting sustainable consumption and production delivering on a revitalised global partnership building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions to achieve sustainable development and protecting our planet and combatting climate change.
A private sector forum, hosted by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on 26 September, will focus on the role of the private sector in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. A Solutions Summit, which will take place on 27 September at the UN Headquarters, will mark the beginning of a longer-term grassroots effort to highlight exceptional innovators — technologists, engineers, and scientists — who are developing solutions that address one or more of the 17 SDGs.
A number of side events are also expected to focus on specific initiatives. A key dates calendar is available at www. The MDGs have proven that goal setting can lift millions put of poverty. However, with 17 new Sustainable Development Goals SDGs that universally apply to all, countries can go further to end all forms of poverty and ensure no one is left behind. Since the UN Conference on Environmental and Development — the Earth Summit — in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the world has identified a new pathway to human well-being, that of sustainable development.
Having received world-wide support from civil society, business, parliamentarians and other actors, the SDGs represent an unprecedented agreement around sustainable development priorities among Member States. With the shared global goals and targets, countries will tailor them and implement policies at the country level.
The 17 SDGs and targets of the new agenda will be monitored and reviewed using a set of global indicators. Governments will also develop their own national indicators to assist in monitoring progress made on the goals and targets.
The sustainable development agenda builds on the successful outcome of the Conference on Financing for Development that was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in July this year. It is expected that it will also positively influence the negotiations towards a new, meaningful and universal agreement on climate change in Paris this December.

Also, the course will prepare you for presentations you will be expected to give in later classes and believe us, there will be many , in your civic and personal life, and for your eventual career. Another very important reason to take a public speaking course such as this one goes beyond these immediate personal benefits.
