Sustainable Development Goals - Restless Responds: 'Be More Ambitious'

From now until the 31st July, Member States are meeting at the UN in New York, to finalise the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is the very last set of negotiations, which follows on from years of consultations, high level meetings, and campaigning from people around the world, who have told their governments and the UN about the World We Want.

As part of the negotiations, there is a "Zero Draft" that details what States will be promising to act on. Over the next week, Member States and civil society, including young people, will be negotiating the exact text of the document - trying to get their priorities represented, and arguing to take the things they don't like, (and don't want to commit to), out.

This is our response to the Zero Draft, and what we are pushing for in the final two weeks.
