On September 25, 2015, 193 countries unanimously adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by framing their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.

SDGs Launch is a project of the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship, a registered charity founded in 2012. Based on the program’s success as its previous title, the SDGs Youth Training Program, the SDGs Launch is a digitized and re-vamped version of its counterpart to expand the program based on popular demand.
