SDGs

Take a Step



The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a call for action for all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

In order to make a difference, these goals aim to bring about change in peoples’ everyday lives. To support such efforts, the UN has launched ‘Take a Step’ campaign: a call to action that highlights the big impact small acts of kindness can have in the world around us.

It’s time to take a step for the Lebanon we want.
