The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was approved by the 193 member states of the United Nations, in an effort to move towards a more inclusive, prosperous, fair and sustainable global society. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the 2030 Agenda mark the path that Barcelona can follow to continue building opportunities, social inclusion and well-being, without harming the environment or jeopardizing the standard of living of future generations.
