EkoCalendar 2019 In September 2015, world leaders committed to achieve sustainability by developing the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). This EkoCalendar highlights the 17 SDGs along with the Good Life Goals (GLGs). The GLGs are developed for each SDG listing five actions that an individual can follow on daily basis. In addition, the calendar highlights dates of environmental significance for each month. It may feel that you and I are too small to make a difference. However, our collective efforts in form of individual actions could lead to a giant leap to realize the dream of a sustainable future.
