"Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.... Many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity without straining land and resources." (United Nations, 2018)

Goal 11 | Sustainable cities and communities: Leadership

Goal 1 No PovertyShow LeadershipAs a global citizen how can I show leadership?
  • "Make a donation to a charity that focuses on improving liveability in your community.
  • Shop, eat and drink locally. Supporting neighbourhood businesses keeps people employed and circulates money back into your community.
  • Commute in a sustainable way – bike, walk or take public transport. Save the car trips for when you’ve got a big group.
  • Take care of public spaces. Start yourself and inspire others to contribute to better public spaces - water the greenery, trim and plant trees, renovate sports areas and playgrounds, organise a cleanup.
  • Stay informed. Follow your local news and stay in touch with the Global Goals online or on social media at @TheGlobalGoals.
