For close to a year I had the great privilege of leading a remote team of eight UN Volunteers in researching, writing, and editing the content and production of an ebook for Caux Forum: Just Governance for Human Security. This team brought the voices of individuals from all over the world to provide a tool for peace building and better understanding of how the UN Global Goals work towards human security.
On September 25th, 2015 countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. The UN Sustainable Development Goals build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals. Caux Forum: Just Governance for Human Security heard this call. Within the pages of this document, JGHS aligns its Six Pillars of Human Security with specific SDGs.
The success of the SDGs are dependent on a holistic approach, this demands individuals in all areas of society and from every country, communicate and work together to create change.
Rather than focusing individual issues and isolated solutions, this Ebook and JGHS addresses how each of the UN SDGs links to another to create a whole solution ensuring inclusion and representation from all members of a community.
The Global Goals and SDGs are a global community movement for change, in this spirit, this eBook was created through the dedicated work of a volunteer team of writers and editors from the United Nations Volunteers Platform and with leadership and overview from the JGHS Team.
