Abstract:
In September 2015 the United Nations General Assembly will adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs will only succeed when they are owned by every citizen in the world, and when all are empowered to become change agents. TheGoals.org leverages the latest ICT landscape and mobile connectivity and offers free, high quality education via a mobile first platform with content closely tied to the SDGs, focussing on mobilizing youths' local actions as solutions to global challenges. This article presents the project's rationale, background as well as its accomplished work and work in the pipeline.
