Independents Week aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals were developed by the UN Global Compact and are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
