What are the SDG?

The SDG or Sustainable Development Goals are 17 goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015. These goals are intended to help us achieve sustainable development on a global level by 2030. The SDG represent an important step towards a more sustainable future for the planet and humanity. But they are also a call to join in and show commitment. Everyone of us can make a contribution. If you would like to know more about the SDG, we recommend the UN website.

The Hanseatic city of Lübeck is also shouldering its responsibility to contribute to a more sustainable, just world.
