THE CHALLENGE

Progress is the result of mindful effort through the actions of many.

In 2016, the United Nations presented 17 Sustainable Development Goals designed to pave a route towards a happier and more equal world. These goals, crafted by years of research and analytical input from issue experts, highlight many of the key issues we face in the 21st century. The list includes problems like No Poverty, Gender Equality, Climate Action, Sustainable Cities and Communities, and more.

While we continue to push world governments to help drive new answers to these solutions, we believe we can also do our individual part solving them. That’s why we’re helping local communities across America help create actionable answers to the problems they face in their own backyards.

This year, we’re focusing on the United Nation’s SDG 2: Zero Hunger by 2030. With the input of issue experts, community leaders, and individuals like you, we want to help develop a solution that will drive us one step closer to solving childhood hunger in for good.

We hope that by 2030, hunger will be a lesson of the past rather than a part of the present.
