On August 2, 2015, 193 UN member states agreed on THE 17 GOALS for the sustainable development of humanity, achieved by 2030. Goals that we, as human beings, must achieve together, if we want to improve the condition of the planet and of all life on it. We have about a decade, until 2030, to completely change the way we consume energy, maintain agriculture, manage water, talk to our neighbors and more. This is not a passing trend, but a global change in our habits, eating habits, consumption habits, the way we do business, social responsibility, and long-term thinking.
