Sustainable development

In the wider context of sustainable development, we refer to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations. This poses a challenge for many governments. Agenda 2030 stands for an integrated approach to the various facets of sustainable development, whereby 17 objectives and 169 sub-objectives are put forward.

If we reach those goals, poverty will come to an end, the planet will be protected, and all people will experience peace and well-being. Agenda 2030 is after all about People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.

Gammol is a small organization with limited resources. Nevertheless, we also strive to contribute to some of those sustainable development objectives through the activities we undertake.
