  • We live in a finite world, and the sooner we come to terms with this, the better. Because the world we live in does not consist of infinite resources, we must understand that sustainable development is necessary for our survival. We can no longer afford to continue utilizing our resources at the current rate we are doing. We must aim to meet our needs in the present, and at the same time, ensure that we are cognizant and considerate of the needs of the generations that succeed us.
    As published by the United Nations (2015), the following are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that aim to transform the world by 2030: 1) no poverty; 2) zero hunger; 3) good health and well-being; 4) quality education; 5) gender equality; 6) clean water and sanitation; 7) affordable and clean energy; 8) decent work and economic growth; 9) industry, innovation, and infrastructure; 10) reduced inequality; 11) sustainable cities and communities; 12) responsible consumption and production; 13) climate action; 14) life below water; 15) life on land; 16) peace and justice strong institutions; and 17) partnerships to achieve the goal.
    Indubitably, some countries are performing better when it comes to adopting sustainable living compared to others.
