Tuesday 25 March is a bit of a milestone. Its the day that 17 Promises launches at the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development (ARFSD) taking place at Victoria. falls, Zimbabwe.
In 2015 The Untied Nations persuaded most oft he world to sign up to delivering on 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) between 2015-2030. We saw the SDG’s as #17Promises™ leaders made to leave the planet a better place for everyone. We have 10 years left to make good on these promises which matter most to children and youth who are the voters and leaders of the future.
17Promises, a publication focused on explaining the Goals and tracking their progress, launches at the Sixth Annual African Regional Forum For Sustainable Development (ARFDS) which will take place 24-27 February 2020 hosted in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. It is a sister publication to Chicken Newspaper for Children, and both are part of the growing Alanna. Max family.
It’s written and designed so everyone, and I mean everyone, can understand what’s at stake. We are working with the UN family, and a while host of local businesses, whoa are all engaged and taking action in their own ways.
It’s a career high point for me, and a doubly so because I grew up near Victoria Falls.
