Volunteerism and the Sustainable Development Goals

What’s your cause? Did you know you can volunteer in support of climate action, gender equality and more?

Adopted by Canada and all 193 United Nations Member States in September 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a 15-year global framework centered on an ambitious set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with 169 targets and more than 230 indicators.


The 2030 Agenda is a people-centred, universal and transformative blueprint for sustainable development. It envisions a secure world free from poverty and hunger, with full and productive employment; access to quality education and universal health coverage; achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls; and ending environmental degradation.
